Visual and Media Arts
At Richmond West teaching practice in the arts is explicit and purposeful. Learning in the arts is underpinned by the belief that all students can learn the skills, knowledge and understandings from the content and outcomes of the curriculum. Our well-equipped and resourced art room provides multiple opportunities for students to experience a range of visual arts options.
The curriculum is carefully scaffolded across year levels and aligns to the Inquiry Based learning where possible. Our teaching programs allow students to build on previous experiences, to practise skills and to apply knowledge in different contexts. Students have opportunities to revisit skills and areas of knowledge so that they can expand their repertoire and increase the complexity of their understanding. Our well regarded Art Show every year is testament to the quality of our Arts program.
