Empowered To Achieve

Creative arts

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts.

Studying the creative arts, students learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform. Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.

Students must study 100 hours of both music and visual arts during Years 7 to 10. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects including drama, dance, photography and visual design. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.

Visual Arts

Visual Arts introduces students to the amazing world of art while providing them with opportunities to enjoy the making and studying of art.

Students learn about the different forms through investigation of media including:

  •  painting / drawing
  •  sculpture
  •  photography
  •  time based art

  •  ceramics
  •  installation
  •  printmaking

The conceptual framework encourages students to see the importance of the relationship between the artist, their world and their audience.

Through structured critical and historical studies students will analyse artworks and movements and in turn learn more about different cultures, beliefs, values and their own contemporary world.


Music is an integral part of a student's education in the modern era. It provides opportunities for students to connect with their world on a personal, emotional level.  The study of Music gives young people a chance to express themselves on a higher level, learning how to engage with peers through performance and composition opportunities. Music has the ability to challenge students to think creatively from a different cultural, social, or emotional perspective. At Cammeraygal, all students will study Music in stage 4 (Year 7 and 8) as an Art form, and participate in experiential learning activities to enhance performance, listening, and composition skills.
