Students continue to learn about safe practices in the arts and in their interactions with other artists. Their understanding of the role of the artist and the audience builds on their experience. As an audience, students focus their attention on the artwork and respond to it. They consider why and how audiences respond to artworks.

Visual Arts | Year 3 – Year 4

  • Explore ideas and artworks from different cultures and times, including artwork by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, to use as inspiration for their own representations
  • Use materials, techniques and processes to explore visual conventions when making artworks
  • Present artworks and describe how they have used visual conventions to represent their ideas. Please have drawing material/tools ready for each participant!
  • Identify intended purposes and meanings of artworks using visual arts terminology to compare artworks, starting with visual artworks in Australia including visual artworks of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples
