6–8 years

Children aged 6–8 develop their skills across a range of materials and explore ways to represent their ideas through art.

All materials are provided.

Classes focus on:

  • taking inspiration from our outdoor surroundings, and using natural and recycled materials wherever possible
  • experimenting across all areas of visual art, including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics
  • sharing artwork and ideas through presentations, performances, film and photography
  • interpreting the work of other artists and movements, including the work of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.

Children develop their skills across a range of materials and explore ways to represent their ideas through art. They explore the arts of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and of the Asia region and learn that they are used for different purposes. They identify a variety of audiences for different arts experiences as they engage with more diverse artworks as artists and audiences.
Classes focus on:

  • extending their awareness of visual conventions, and observe closely visual detail as they use materials, techniques and technologies and processes in visual arts forms
  • exploring and experimenting with visual conventions such as line, shape, colour and texture to develop an individual approach to a theme or subject matter
  • exploring, observing and identifying ideas and symbols used and adapted by artists in their artworks as they make and respond to visual arts
  • considering how and why artists, craftspeople and designers realise their ideas through different visual representations, practices, processes and viewpoints.
