Creative And Performing Arts

... Art is a line around your thoughts ... Gustav Klimt

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts.

Studying the creative arts, students learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform. Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives. Students must study 100 hours of both music and visual arts during Years 7 to 10. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.

Goals

  • encourage creative thinkers and lifelong learners
  • develop critical 21st century skills: communication, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration
  • provide opportunities for students to explore and experiment  creatively.
  • emerse students in authentic and real word experiences to engage in the artworld and enable deeper conceptual connections.
