Visual Art and Craft

Silkwood inspires students to explore, innovate and thrive in their learning adventure … it’s The Silkwood Way.

The Silkwood Way is to appreciate the creation of something artistic as a natural endowment, not the exceptional fate of a chosen few.

We believe that every child, given the confidence, skills and tools can draw, paint, sculpt and make things of value in the same way they can learn to read and write and work with numbers.

Our unique educational approach includes a specialised Art and Craft program that is delivered by expert teachers. With the student’s longer term projects we source the highest quality resources and materials for the children to work with and ensure the work they produce is meaningful and useful.

Students become proficient in a wide range of art and craft skills. They are then able to use these skills in all other areas of their learning programs to enhance their work.
