Kinross PS provides a specialist Art Program for students in Years 1-6. Mrs Fiona Wilson is our art specialist.
The Arts have the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich all students, exciting the imagination and encouraging them to reach their creative and expressive potential. The term 'creativity' plays a critical role in all arts subjects.
Visual Arts incorporates all three fields of art, craft and design. Students create visual representations that communicate, challenge and express their own and others' ideas, both as artists and audience members. They develop perceptual and conceptual understanding, critical reasoning and practical skills through exploring and expanding their understanding of their world, and other worlds.
Visual Arts engages students in a journey of discovery, experimentation and problem-solving relevant to visual perception and visual language. Students undertake this journey by utilising visual techniques, technologies, practices and processes. Visual Arts supports students' ability to recognise and develop cultural appreciation of visual arts in the past and contemporary contexts through exploring and responding to artists and their artworks.
A Specialist Showcase takes place in Term 4 where student work is put on display. Students participate in various projects and competitions throughout the year. Mrs Wilson also integrates whole school themes and special days into her art program. For example, providing artwork for Harmony Week and ANZAC Day. Kinross PS has some very talented artists as you can see from the artwork below.
