Art at Parkerville

Visual Arts at Parkerville Primary School is led by Mrs Barty and incorporates all three fields of art, craft and design. Students are encouraged to create visual pieces that express their own ideas whilst developing perceptual and conceptual understanding.

Students’ art classes are held in our purpose-built art room that boasts light and space and is well-resourced.

Mrs Barty covers all areas of the curriculum and provides opportunities for students to present their work to a wider audience through the HEC Arts Festival.

As you come into our front office or visit our library, you will see the art work of our students on display.

Visual Arts knowledge and skills ensure that, individually and collaboratively, students:

  • demonstrate confidence, curiosity, imagination and enjoyment when engaged in visual arts making
  • apply visual arts techniques, materials, processes and technologies to create artworks through the design and inquiry process
  • apply visual language and critical creative thinking skills when creating and responding to artwork
  • develop aesthetic, artistic and cultural appreciation of visual arts in past and contemporary contexts, both as artists and art critics.
