The Visual Arts program and the Art Room have an important role here at Solway. It is a learning centre for the students to explore their creativity, experiment with the different media, develop skills and techniques, learn about other artists, both past and present, and above all, ENJOY these experiences.
Solway has a most vibrant Visual Arts program where all the students experience the many aspects of creative endeavours. Painting and drawing are, of co urse, very important but the students become involved in collage, clay- work, construction, sculpture, printmaking, threads and textiles and digital art.
The Art Room is opened on Monday lunchtimes for Art Extension classes for the Years 3 to 6 students and, again, on Thursday lunchtimes for Open Art when all students (Prep to 6) can choose to come and do an art activity or work on their current project.
All in all, the Art Room is a very popular place here at Solway.
