The Visual Art program at Reservoir Views Primary School is designed to encourage and challenge students to achieve their artistic potential in an enjoyable and supportive environment. Students develop their creativity and imagination as well as refining their practical and fine motor skills. They learn to make choices when experimenting with materials, tools and techniques.
Throughout their time at Reservoir Views Primary School students will get the opportunity to explore a wide variety of different art mediums such as drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, clay, sculpture, construction and textiles. Students learn to communicate through their art, respond to the artworks of others and gain appreciation from well known artists.
Students attend one 60 minute session of Art per week with their class and have the opportunity to participate in extra curricula activities such as lunch time art groups and creating artwork for an upcoming Italian Art Festival which takes place in Term 3.
Year 5/6 students were involved in an exciting collaboration with Darebin Council in Term 1 which involved creating playspace equipment for D.R Atkinson Reserve in Reservoir. Their designs are currently being taken to the next level by Industrial Designers at Arterial Design and we can’t wait to see the finished products!
The Art Room at RVPS is a wonderful place of creativity and exploration. It is a spacious, well equipped and inspiring learning environment. Students are asked to provide art smocks to wear during ‘messier’ lessons.
The artworks produced by our talented students are celebrated and displayed around the school as well and at Keon Park Children’s Hub and through Darebin Council. All students have decorated folios that they will house their artworks. At the end of the year they can take the folio home to keep.
Please feel free to visit me (Lisa) in the artroom, I’m always more than happy to share your children’s creations with you and they would love you to see their work too.
