All students in Prep to Grade 6 have a weekly Visual Art session in our purpose built art room. Our comprehensive and sequential program is based on the Victorian Curriculum and features painting, printing, construction, threads and textiles and modelling.
Visual art activities focus on artistic expression and skill development, complement our Inquiry units of work and foster the children’s appreciation of art. ICT devices are incorporated into the Visual Arts program, used as a valuable tool for research and inspiration.
A big focus at Sherbourne is the celebration and display of the work of our students. All areas of the school feature frequently updated displays of Art and Inquiry based work creations. Clay modelling features regularly in the Art program and having our own kiln in the Art room enables work to be fired on site. Many children maintain a collection of their clay pieces, progressing from Prep through to Year 6.
