Spring Mill’s Motto is ‘Physical Fitness and the Arts for Life’.

Art

Students have opportunities to experience a balanced approach to studying art in Ms Moore’s room. In viewing and producing art, students study form, theme and context so that they can create, as well as understand layers of meaning in visual language. In exploring form (or how the work is constructed), young Spring Mill artists can determine the structural decisions key to the creative process, that lead to a final product. By examining theme (or what the work is about), our students explore what artists express through a global “Big Idea” that relates to the artists’ personal viewpoint. In investigating context (or the when, where, and why art was created), Spring Mill students begin to understand the authentic nature of artwork by looking at conditions under which the art was produced from our perspective, as well as global and past cultures.
