Bolinda Primary School provides an Arts Program for all children, encompassing Visual and Performing Arts as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum. The Arts program at Bolinda Primary School consists of a weekly session for every student where they are given opportunities to express ideas in a calm and friendly atmosphere.
Over the course of the year, students are able to experiment with a variety of media, including painting, drawing, textiles, print-making, collage, construction and visual communication. They learn to develop a visual language around art elements that is appropriate when thinking and talking about art, such as line, shape, colour and texture. Students study famous artists and famous paintings and use these as worked examples for specific art techniques.
Every second year all students from Foundation to Year 6 will be involved in the school ‘Production’. Productions provide wonderful experiences for students in prop building, costuming, performing and many other ‘behind the scenes’ roles. It is also a wonderful opportunity for the whole school community to celebrate the many talented students we have at Bolinda Primary School.
