Studying the creative arts, students learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform. Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives. Students must study 100 hours of both music and visual arts during Years 7 to 10. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects of Ceramics, Drama, Photographic and Digital Media or Printmaking. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.

Students Studying the creative arts will:

·        develop critical 21st century skills: communication, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration.
