The celebration of individuality, creativity, problem-solving and personal success underlines the exploration of Visual Arts.
Students will engage with a variety of art materials and methods throughout the year, like sculpture, printmaking, imaginative and realistic drawing, painting, computer graphics, animation, and ceramics.
Art will be inspired by classroom themes and topics, cultural celebrations, personal experiences and expression, professional artists, and their styles, exploring art throughout history and influences, but most importantly the joy and fun of artistic expression.
During term one, students will look at Sculpture. Please take your children to experience the many sculptural exhibitions showing around Perth. I will keep you informed through the newsletter of events that come to my attention but if you know of an engaging exhibition please let me know so I can pass that on to the Churchland community.
At the end of term we will hold the Sculpture by the School art show. See the newsletter for regular updates.
The art room is an open classroom where all are welcome to enjoy your children’s ideas and progress following the Government’s guidelines at the time. Art will be shared through the Seesaw app for you to enjoy.
Please encourage your child’s efforts and ask them to tell you about the choices they have made, how they create their art and what they may have done differently next time.
All students need to bring their own old shirt to put over their uniform to protect it against accidental splatters from paint or ink or clay. The paint we use is water washable but the dyes in the paint can stain fabric. This shows respect for the Churchlands PS uniform whist allowing the students to freely use the art materials without concern.
I am looking forward to an inspired creative year of fun. If you need to contact Mrs Cockerill please email or phone the school to make an appointment.
