ART – TERM 4
The Arts encompass those artistic pursuits that express and communicate - through dance, drama, media, music and visual art - what it is to be human.
Through these five distinct art forms, we develop, share and pass on understandings of ourselves, our histories, our cultures and our worlds to future generations.
The Arts provide students with the knowledge, skills and understandings to express ideas, observations, experiences, values and beliefs.
Students use their creativity, imagination and senses as they develop, extend and enhance their understanding of arts practice through active inquiry, engagement and reflection, both individually and collaboratively.
During the Day of Excellence, students in Prep- Year 3 will be investigating how still and moving images, sounds and words are used in media texts   Students in Year 4-6 will be investigating how still and moving images, sounds and words are selected to construct media texts
