The Arts

The Arts includes the art forms of dance, drama, visual arts, media and music. Learning in these art forms engages students in developing their abilities to make works and appraise their own works and that of others. At Saint John's the Arts aims to develop students’:

Creativity, critical thinking, aesthetic knowledge and understanding about arts practices, through making and responding to artworks with increasing self-confidence

Arts knowledge and skills to communicate ideas; they value and share their arts and life experiences by representing, expressing and communicating ideas, imagination and Observations about their individual and collective worlds to others in meaningful ways

Use of innovative arts practices with available and emerging technologies, to express and represent ideas, while displaying empathy for multiple viewpoints

Understanding of Australia’s histories and traditions through the arts, engaging with the artworks and practices, both traditional and contemporary, of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples

Understanding of local, regional and global cultures, and their arts histories and traditions, through engaging with the worlds of artists, artworks, audiences and arts professions. (ACARA, 2106)
