The linked activities allow students to experiment with related techniques and each teaching presentation culminates with an art-making task.

    Great resource pack, however I would say the language in the PowerPoints especially ‘Line’ is quite complex and heavy when its targeting Foundation – Year 2 students.

      Hi Adelaide,

      Thank you for your lovely comment. I am so glad you are enjoying our resources. We have covered line and other areas as directed by the Australian Curriculum.

      In Foundation to Year 2 Visual Arts, students:
      – become aware of visual conventions and learn to notice visual detail
      – explore how and why artworks are created and ways to use and apply visual conventions, such as line, shape, colour and texture
      – learn how their ideas or subject matter can be developed through different forms, styles, techniques, materials and technologies
      – learn about how and why artists, craftspeople and designers present their ideas through different visual representations, practices, processes and viewpoints.

      If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
