Creative arts

Creative arts is mandatory for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. 

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts where they learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform.

Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.

Athelstane Public School is fortunate to have Howard Matthew, an artist in residence who works with students on a weekly basis as part of our Room 13 program. Works created by students as part of the Room 13 program have featured in art competitions.

Room 13 gives students the opportunity to express themselves through visual arts using a range of mediums.
