Bicton Primary School promotes a respectful, nurturing, and supportive environment.

Visual Arts

Visual Arts at Bicton focuses on three distinct areas of art, craft and design. Our students develop their skills to create visual representations that express their ideas, feeling and communication. They develop critical reasoning, conceptual understanding and expand on their knowledge of the world around them through exploring and expressing in different mediums. The study of artists, artwork and history forms a large component of this subject at Bicton. We have two specialist art teachers who challenge and expand the creativity of our students.

A small snapshot of key focuses and strategies Bicton is employing to continue to build our Visual Arts programs and pedagogy are:

  • Investigate Digital media (digital cameras/ipads and other resources required to implement the Western Australian Curriculum).
  • Investigate and apply for funding and grants that will assist with art engagement within the school and wider community.
  • Design and implement a community art auction.
  • Continue to integrate Visual Arts into the classroom through collaboration with classroom teachers and specialist teachers.
