Art

The Visual Arts program at Colac Primary School is designed to encourage and challenge students to achieve their artistic potential in an enjoyable and supportive environment – There are no right or wrong answers!  Students develop their creativity, imagination and problem solving as well as refining their practical and fine motor skills. They learn to make choices when experimenting with materials, tools and techniques and the importance of the elements of art – line, colour, value/ tone, shape, form, space and texture.

Students at Colac Primary School get the opportunity to explore a wide variety of different art mediums such as drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, clay, sculpture, construction and textiles. Students learn to communicate through their art, respond to the artworks of others and gain an appreciation for well-known artists.

All students have 1 hour of Art per week with their class in our large and well equipped Art Room.

The artworks produced by our talented students are celebrated and displayed at our annual Art Exhibition at Colac Otway Performing Arts and Cultural Centre (COPACC).  Students also have the opportunity to help create artworks for the Colac Kana festival which is a wonderful way to engage with our local community.
