Study in the Creative Arts provides students with strong discipline based knowledge and the fundamental skills, creative expertise, learning mindset and critical capabilities for the future world of work. Creative Arts students experience and develop the complex skills required to create and test ideas, generate creative works with confidence, shape inquiry and to critically evaluate and reflect on what they do. Study in the Creative Arts prepares students to be significant producers and informed consumers of culture.
Teaching practice in creative arts is explicit and purposeful. Experiences are sequential and meaningful to develop students’ skills, knowledge and understanding within the art forms. Creative arts develops the whole child through its unique content and experiences
