Learning and arts at Main Arm Public
STUDENTS at Main Arm Public School showcased their art and musical talents last week at a special session of the school's new arts program, launched earlier this term.
Throughout the year the school hosted a series of 'Artists in residence' classes to enrich and inspire students across a variety of art forms from sculpture to Spanish.
The P&C funded program kicked off this term with art teacher Jacqui Smith teaching art to all students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
"I created A Drawing Laboratory which provided a space for students to closely observe the world around them to experiment with drawing media and techniques."
The launch of the enrichment program co-incided with the appointment of music teacher, Kathy Kolarik, who trained at the Melbourne Conservatorium. Largely funded by P&C, Kathy runs classroom sessions, a school choir as well as offering small group tuition in recorder, ukulele and guitar.
"Creativity through the arts is an important part of the vibrancy of our school community. I am delighted that through the fundraising efforts of our P&C we have been able to launch this enrichment program," said school principal, Virginia Pavlovich.
