The Visual Arts program at Mount Waverley North Primary School aims to promote creativity and imagination, where students are able to exercise their emotions and intellect simultaneously, therefore providing a vehicle for self-expression.. Many activities are designed to support classroom thematic work and build upon the students' skills and knowledge and their appreciation of art. Students have the opportunity to work individually and on group projects. They are encouraged to share and discuss their own work and that of their peers. Tasks are usually open-ended and assessment and reporting is on an individual basis. Students' artwork is displayed in the art room and in a variety of locations around the school.Students attend a Visual Arts lesson each week in our Art Room, taught by our specialist Art teacher. All art experiences from Foundation to Year 6 are sequential and are designed for students to not only reach their potential at each stage of their development, but to have the opportunity to excel above the expected level.
