Visual Arts



All students at Parkdale Primary School attend a 50 minute art session with our full time visual arts teacher. The Visual Arts program is guided by developmentally sequential activities in 2D and 3D design principles of: Drawing, Collage, Painting, Textiles, Modelling, Construction. The children also have the opportunity to participate in our Parkdale Art and Craft Exhibition (P.A.C.E) which is held every second year.




Grade 3 & Grade 4

The students in Grade 3 and Grade 4 have been investigating ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ during Term 1. Both year levels have been working very hard bending wire, scrunching newspaper, taping, modrocing, papiermache-ing, moulding magiclay and painting! Stay tuned for the finished product.

Grade 3 - ‘Luna Park Re-Imagined’.



Grade 4 – ‘Melbourne’s Sporting Stars’


Grade 5 & Grade 6

The students investigated the abstract artist Vassily Kandinsky then produced magnificent Cityscapes & circles. They have been using soft, vibrant chalk pastels, using blending techniques to achieve a hazy, misty effect. Great work!
