Creative arts

Creative arts is mandatory for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. 

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts where they learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform.

Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.

Creative Arts is organised in the artforms of Visual Arts, Music, Drama and Dance.

Each of the artforms has its own traditions, the body of knowledge, skills and methods of learning.

Students are given opportunities to:

  • make and appreciate in visual arts
  • perform, organise sound and listen in music
  • make, perform and appreciate in drama
  • compose, perform and appreciate in dance.
