The Visual Arts program at STM encourages students to participate and generate artworks that communicate their own ideas. Students learn to respond, reflect and evaluate artworks of their own and others. Where possible, classroom themes are used as a stimulus to make connections.

Students create works in visual art forms such as drawing, design, painting, colour media, collage, mixed media, printmaking and construction. Elements of art such as colour, texture, shape and form are examined to allow children to explore these in various mediums. They will study and use the skills, techniques, processes, conventions and technologies of the Arts.

A positive, happy and respectful environment allows all students to be curious, use their imagination and enjoy the process of creating and making.
