All students at Thomastown Primary School have a one hour Visual Arts lesson each week. As well as the commonly known areas of Art such as Drawing and Painting, our students learn about Construction, Printing, Textiles, Modelling, Collage and Design.
The Visual Art Program enables the students to develop their creative and expressive capabilities. This is done by learning about Artists, through Literature, the Integrated Curriculum and Community Projects.
