SPECIALIST PROGRAMS - THE ARTS
At Banyan Fields Primary School we value imagination and creativity. Our Visual Arts Programme is structured to foster and grow these qualities in our students from their first days at school until the time they graduate.
Each week classes have a session of hands-on art making with our specialist art teacher. Our Art Room is purpose built to meet all that the students need to complete their art works.
The themes selected for their projects support and enrich units of inquiry being taught in the generalist classroom. Across the span of their school lives students are introduced to a range of art media and materials to plan and produce artworks that communicate their experiences, beliefs, feelings and ideas. Along the way they explore and learn many art processes and techniques that incorporate the disciplines of art and design. These are then applied through painting, drawing, modelling, construction, printing, textiles and mixed media.
When planning their artworks, students discuss and learn about contemporary and historical works and works from other cultures. Students are encouraged to give their thoughts, beliefs, ideas and opinions about art works created by artists using appropriate arts terminology.
Student Performances and Music
At Banyan Fields we value Performing Arts and encourage all children to express their ideas and feelings through Music, Dance and Drama. Every student is given the opportunity to sing, dance, and perform during our school concert term.
Term 3 is a drama filled term as each level from Prep - Year 6 have concert evening and matinee performances. Students are given the opportunity to work on their own performances while also participating in group activities. All tickets can be bought online through trybooking.com
Every December our school community gets together for an evening of performances from each year level and celebrate the end of the year with our Christmas Carols.
