pdf View the Visual Arts Curriculum 'at-a-glance'

Each level has six strands, which are organised to ensure a balance between making art and looking at and responding to art. The strands are:  
  • Drawing
  • Paint and colour
  • Print
  • Clay
  • Construction
  • Fabric and fibre
When engaging with visual arts activities and working with different media, children are given opportunities to develop sensitivity to qualities of line, shape, form, colour and tone, texture, pattern and rhythm and spatial organisation. A sense of these visual elements and the related skills are developed as work is completed on the strands and strand units.
