Curriculum area-specific resources have been developed to support teachers implementing the curriculum, organised by 'Help me plan', 'Help me find a teaching resource' and 'Help me assess'.
Overview of Visual Arts
Learning in Visual Arts involves students making and responding to artworks, drawing on the world as a source of ideas. Students engage with and develop knowledge of visual arts, skills, techniques and processes, and use materials as they explore a range of forms, styles and contexts. Through Visual Arts, students learn to reflect critically on their own experiences and responses to the work of artists, craftspeople and designers and to develop their own arts’ knowledge. They learn, with growing sophistication, to express and communicate experiences through and about visual arts.
The Visual Arts curriculum can be accessed via the Victorian Curriculum F–10 website
