Visual Art

At Poseidon PS, we have an ECE and a Senior Primary Art Specialist, catering for PP to Year 6 students.

In the curriculum the arts include dance, drama, media arts, music visual arts and visual communication design. The arts enable students to develop their creative and expressive capacities by learning about the different practices, disciplines and traditions that have shaped the expression of culture locally, national, and globally.

Visual Arts incorporates all three fields or art, craft and design. Students create visual representations that communicate, challenge and express their own and other’s ideas, both as artists and audience members. They develop perceptual and conceptual understanding, critical reasoning and practical skills through exploring and expanding their understanding of the world, and other world.

At Poseidon we explore Visual Art through discovery & experimentation, planning & design, and creative problem solving. During Art sessions, we encourage students to create art using a range of genres such as drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, ceramics, sculpture, and textile weaving.
