Visual Arts

Visual Arts are so important because it gives students the freedom to:

  • be themselves

  • voice their ideas

  • voice their feelings

  • use and express their imagination and creativity

 

We are very fortunate at Timbarra College with Art because every child has the opportunity to:

  • receive a lesson of Art each week which runs for one hour

  • have access to a very large room and very well resourced room

  • share and celebrate their work

Through the implementation of the Victorian Curriculum, the students learn as an artist and audience member to explore, practise and create using a variety of media such as drawing, painting, collage, construction, modelling and textiles.

In Art, we also use the Technology Process. This is where we will work in a unit of work as a project over a whole term using an inquiry based approach.

The very first formal biennial Primary Art Show which was held at the end of 2021 was a great success. The theme was animals and the concept was to go on a “Wonderfully Wild” journey around the world visiting different habitats and the various animals that live there. All students spent a great deal of time designing, creating and helping display their artworks. The main feedback from the students afterwards was a great sense of appreciation of and pride in showcasing and celebrating their own creative work as well as the work of their classmates, friends, siblings and other year levels.
