Visual Arts is intregrated into all our class programmes at Miramar Central School. Tuakana students (Years 4-6) and Tenia students (Years 0-3) have the opportunity to take part in a school Art Club run by Rachel Burke during lunchtime once a week. Art Club activities are geared towards an adjusted level for those students who are involved in the club. It also provides students with meaningful input into larger school events. For example, the students have created posters, props and backdrops in Art Club for our school productions, discos, celebrations, fundraisers and special events.
Students in both Teina and Tuakana also contributed to the creation of a large prop to advertise the Book Fair last year (a pirate ship in the library) and will be creating a similar mural for this year’s Book Fair event.
The students also spend two days a term working with Gillian, our Arts Specialist on the days when teachers have classroom release. She plans a variety of Art activities for the students that are meaningful and attempt to cover all of the Arts disciplines (see below).
