Students learn about culture and community through a study of the creative arts. Each art form has its own unique skills, concepts and a capacity to inspire and enrich lives. During Years 7 and 8 students must study both music and visual arts. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects.
Teaching practice in creative arts is explicit and purposeful. Experiences are sequential and meaningful to develop students skills, knowledge and understanding within the art forms. Creative arts develops the whole child through its unique content and experiences.
The Airds High School CAPA faculty aim to deliver engaging and diverse programs that allow learners to develop an appreciation for the creative arts. Students are supported through the processes of composition, making and performing to produce unique works that represent students growth and development as well as the progression of key skills that can be transferred across other KLA's and into possible vocations including architecture, engineering, design, IT, and working within the film and music industries.
