At Bentleigh West Primary School, our aim is to deliver an exciting and engaging Visual Arts Program that enables students to develop skills, techniques and processes in the following discipline areas:

  • Drawing

  • Painting

  • Printmaking

  • Construction

  • Modelling

  • Collage

  • Threads & Textiles


By exposing the students to theses discipline areas we are equipping the students of Bentleigh West with life skills such as time management, decision making, risk taking, creative thinking, problem solving and visualising.


Students are given time to experiment with a broad range of media and materials in their weekly lessons and are encouraged to use their own original ideas.


Through the study of various artists and their works, students are encouraged to identify specific art styles and discuss their responses to selected art work. The elements and principles of art and design are used to discuss, respond and evaluate their own and others artworks.
