Children will work with different materials and will typically produce a different artwork each week. Some tasks may extend over a 2- or 3-week period. Children will have exposure to dry and wet mediums including acrylic paint, watercolour, ink, pastels, colour pencil, pencil and pens. Children will have the opportunity to do some 3-dimensional work each term.
Children will often be provided with visual images or objects for reference and inspiration. At other times they will be working from imagination. Tasks are directed by the teacher, but children are encouraged to use their imagination and make some of their own decisions about their work. Subject matter can range from looking at plants and animals, faces, figures, urban and rural environments, the work of famous artists, other cultures and abstraction.
