Program

Art lessons at Mont Albert begin in Foundation through to Year 6 and are mostly 80 min fortnightly lessons. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional media and techniques are explored during lessons. Areas such as textiles, pottery, painting, printing, drawing, collage and construction are covered throughout the year in each level.

In the Art Room, students:
• develop their confidence by using a variety of media
• explore concepts and develop ideas
• improve skills, techniques and processes through regular practice
• present their work for display and discussion
• develop their own critical awareness and ability to analyse art works from the past and present
• become aware of cultural diversity

Through their work, students are encouraged to explore real, imaginary and abstract ideas, as well as current cultural and historical issues. Students are given the opportunity to experiment with ideas, concepts and feelings, and are encouraged to use imagination and perception to plan and create artwork. The artwork is linked to the Integrated Units in order to enhance the unit of work and to draw upon the meaningful experiences and observations of each student.

All students’ work is valued and frequently placed on display for a period of time before taking it home. Art pieces are displayed in the Art Room, in the hallway opposite the Year 1 classrooms, in the senior building and in the wider community throughout the year. All students working in the art room are expected to wear an art smock at all times so their school uniform is protected from the products used in lessons.
