Art at Southern Cross starts off in term one with exploring and expanding our knowledge of drawing, developing our drawing skills and confidence in this area, following teacher instruction and drawing from life. In term two we start painting using various tools and gaining a knowledge of mixing and creating colours. The students are exposed to creating art displays and the importance of framing and mounting their work. Terms three and four cover creating works of art with our gained knowledge from previous years. We like to celebrate our students’ work and success by displaying their art around the school. This also helps encourage students to appreciate art from within their community and encourage students to look at what others have achieved.
