Celebrating Art at GEPS
All students at Geelong East Primary have 1 hour art lesson a week. Students learn skills and theory in many forms of Art such as drawing, painting, modelling, construction, printing, textiles and collage from Foundation to Grade 5/6. They experiment with a variety of materials, learning numerous techniques whilst creating individual artworks.
The elements of colour, space, texture, shape, line, form and value are learnt through a variety of topics, many of which are complementary to the inquiry studied in the classrooms. The students are given the opportunity to discover their creativity and experiment with different techniques to enable them to create art pieces that are unique to their individual personalities.
Students at Geelong East Primary have been involved in numerous community art events such as displaying work at the Geelong show, drawing portraits for the Geelong Gallery and designing a Christmas tree for the display in central Geelong.
There is also a weekly art club for students wanting to continue their artwork or for students to relax and create art during their lunchtime.
