We welcomed new Year 7 and 8 classes into Music and Visual Arts at the start of this term as they continued their creative arts rotation.  Year 7 Visual Arts students are currently discovering the building blocks of an artwork and are looking forward to using these to create a portfolio of work that explores colour, line, shape, tone, texture and space.
