Programs & Facilities - Visual Arts

Ballarat Specialist School’s Visual Arts aims to develop students’:
• confidence, curiosity, imagination and enjoyment to develop a personal voice through the engagement with visual arts-making and ways of communicating visually
• visual arts knowledge, understanding, skills, inquiry processes and thinking to shape ideas
• understanding of visual arts in the human experience

Play Based Learning

Play-based learning is an important part of the BSS Visual Arts Program. This is partly because play and art are fundamentally related. Play-based learning is developed through engagement, communication and a sense of purpose. Play is a context for learning through which students organise and make sense of their world, as they engage actively with people, objects and representation.
