Visual Arts

William Ruthven Primary School's Visual Arts program incorporates both art making and art appreciation in association with developing a visual arts language. Students learn to explore their creativity and imagination through a skills based visual arts program. This supports the process of art making and students are given clear instructions on the correct use of tools, materials and techniques.


Over the course of the year, students are able to experiment with a variety of media including painting, drawing, ceramics, textiles, print-making, collage, construction and visual communication. They learn to develop a visual language around art elements that is appropriate when thinking and talking about art, such as line, shape, colour and texture.
