The Arts


Visual Art

 

At Marysville Primary School, we provide a Visual Arts program that excites and engages students. By facilitating a safe and supportive environment, students' draw on their own experiences and understandings, using critical and creative thinking to make artistic decisions. This fosters a sense of belonging in all students as their experiences are valued and used to guide learning.
