The Arts (Performing Arts and Visual Arts) are essential to students’ creative and expressive development in the primary school. In this unit, you will engage with, and explore specific Art disciplines and practices. Through practical workshops based on content from the Victorian Curriculum-Foundation to Level 6, and using digital technologies and unit material, you will build skills, knowledge and understanding of the Arts.

As pre-service teachers you will learn as ‘artist and as audience’ and through ‘making and responding’. This unit introduces you to ways of incorporating Arts learning in primary school settings from a range of cultures, times and locations including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The unit also aims to build your confidence and competence in teaching and learning the Arts.
