Inspiring creative minds to shine.

Warragul Secondary School

The Visual Arts faculty has earned a reputation for the pursuit of excellence and a strong commitment to achieving high results.  Our ethos is to provide a structured yet dynamic environment that enables students to develop an appreciation of the visual arts through both practical and theoretical studies.

Students are encouraged to modify their thinking and be flexible and creative learners who constantly solve problems.  They are challenged by an innovative and adaptive curriculum that is designed to extend their thinking.  The faculty fosters a passion for the arts and the ability to think creatively so that our students develop their artistic skills and become life-long visual learners with a love for the arts.

The visual arts faculty offers a wide range of courses from Years 7 to 12, including Arts, Studio Arts, Visual Communication Design, Media, Product Design and Technology (Soft Materials) and Product Design and Technology (Hard Materials).

Our facilities offer students innovating opportunities to engage with the various disciplines of the visual arts.  Traditional methods such as drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics are communicated in Fine Art.  Photography also covers a large range of media that includes darkroom, studio, film and digital photography that are taught in highly equipped digital labs with printing facilities for those who work in digital media.  Product Design and Technology encompasses a wide range of materials that include both hard and soft.

We are committed to providing unique learning experiences that push student’s talents and abilities.  Our environment has an atmosphere of energy, enthusiasm and creative risk taking, as well as high expectations in practical skills.  We showcase a passion for the Arts and a commitment to our students in achieving the very best they can in the Visual Arts.

Warragul Junior School

The Junior School Visual Arts Program provides opportunities for children to experience, develop, represent and understand ideas, emotions and values.  They learn to take risks, be imaginative, question, explore, practice and refine techniques in whole term projects so that a quality piece of art work can be achieved.

Your child will experiment with, and explore, a range of media in which they will create a variety of 2D and 3D art works.  Art works are mounted and displayed in a biennial Art Show for the School and wider community to enjoy.

Traralgon Secondary School

At St Paul’s Traralgon Campus the students are offered a visual and tactile approach to communication through the Arts.  Students have opportunities to explore and experiment with a variety of two dimensional and three dimensional materials and techniques.  The Traralgon Campus is excited to introduce the Year 9/10 Photomedia course beginning Semester Two, 2015.

Traralgon Junior School

Art at the Junior School is all about exploring the world around you in a creative and individual way.

The words of Picasso on the Art door at Traralgon, greet every child as they enter the Art room – “Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life.”

Students are encouraged to explore the various elements of Art through experimenting with textiles, construction, collage, drawing and paint; appreciating the work of famous artists whilst at the same time creating their own individual styles.
