The Arts Curriculum
In Music, students listen to, compose and perform music from a broad range of styles, traditions and contexts. They create, shape and share sounds in time and space and critically analyze music they listen to, make and perform. Music practice is aurally based and focuses on acquiring and using knowledge and understanding about music and musicians from their own experience and other times and places.
In Art, students engage with the concepts of artists, artworks and audience. Art practice involves experiences, practical and critical thinking, conceptual and spatial inquiry and the analysis of artworks from a range of viewpoints as artist and audience. Students make individual and collaborative artworks that communicate their artistic intentions and use skills of observation, interpretation and analysis to critically evaluate their own and others’ artworks.
In Drama, students explore and depict real and fictional worlds through the body language, gesture and space to make meaning as performers and audience. They create, rehearse, perform and respond to drama individually and collaboratively. They explore the diversity of drama in the contemporary world and other times, places and traditions through various theatrical contexts, styles and forms.
Arts Education Assessment
Achievement standards indicate the quality of learning that students should typically demonstrate. The sequence of achievement standards in each Arts subject describes progress in the learning area, demonstrating a broad sequence of expected learning. This sequence provides teachers with a framework of growth and development in each subject.
Subject-specific terminology and organization reflect the essential characteristics of learning in each subject. The achievement standards also reflect differences in the nature and scope of the learning in each arts subject.
Portfolios of annotated student work samples illustrate the expected learning and help teachers to make judgments about whether students have achieved the standard at each level.
The Arts have the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich all students, exciting the imagination and encouraging them to reach their creative and expressive potential. The three distinct but related Arts subjects— Music, Art and Drama — all provide opportunities for students to create, share and communicate ideas, emotions, experiences and imagination.In Spectra, students learn as artists and audience through the intellectual, emotional and sensory experiences of the arts. They acquire skills and develop critical understanding that inform decision-making and aesthetic choices. Through the Arts, students learn to express their ideas, thoughts and opinions as they discover and interpret the world.
In Spectra, the arts contribute to the development of confident and creative individuals, nurturing and challenging them into active and informed citizens. Learning and practising arts traditions foster social competencies and aids the development of personal identity, views of the world and global citizenship. Arts-learning is based on cognitive, affective and sensory/kinesthetic responses to arts practices as students access increasingly complex content, skills, techniques and processes, developing confidence and sophistication in their years of learning.
