Throughout Term 4 students will collaborate, communicate and work independently within a team and learn from, provide feedback and contribute to the learning of others.  Students will learn to ask the critical aesthetic questions, make connections and identify patterns in artworks.  They will be encouraged to respond to unfamiliar or challenging information and be encouraged to learn. 

Learning in Visual Art involves students making and responding to artworks. This will be done through using their creativity, imagination and critical thinking skills combined with an honest, resilient, hard-working and respectful understanding of other people and cultures. Students engage with and develop knowledge of visual arts, skills, techniques and processes and use materials as they explore a range of forms, styles and contexts.  Students will be encouraged to see the relationship between effort and achievement as they continue to plan, exhibit and present their artwork for this year’s Art Show.

In addition to creating artworks, students will be encouraged to respond to their own and each other’s artworks using their knowledge, understanding and skills. They will be encouraged to think about the following questions:

-       What kinds of things do you see in the work?

-       How would you describe them?

-       What elements of art did you / the artist use? (line, shape, space, form, texture, colour)

-       What principles of design are used? (rhythm, movement, balance, emphasis, variety, unity)

-       What do you think about this artwork and how does it make you feel?


This term students will complete a range of artworks using a variety of materials and techniques such as: 

-       Finalising their artworks to exhibit and present at this year’s art show

-       Printing

-       Working with a range of paints such as fabric and metallic

-       Collage

-       Drawing with a range of materials

-       Assembling papers to create a 3D object

-       Learning about positive and negative space

-       Expressing their personal views and judgements about their art through sharing and discussing their folio


In addition, our year six students will complete a graduation piece to be presented to the wider school community at their year six graduation in December.
