The creative nature of visual art provides individuals with the opportunity for personal growth, the expression of ideas and a process for examining identity. The exhibition of visual art offers an insight into the diverse interpretations of life and its experience by artists. Engagement with visual art facilitates creative thinking and the development of new ideas, it also supports connection and exchange within communities and beyond.
Art is a key part of life at Mentone Grammar. Students are able to express themselves in a variety of 2D & 3D mediums, to respond to a myriad of topics and themes within our extensive Visual Arts curriculum. Some of the mediums include: ceramics, collage, drawing, fibrecraft, interactive digital media, painting, printing, sculptural constructions and visual communication & design.
Students immerse themselves in the process of making artworks as well as the creation of final products. Our talented and enthusiastic Art Staff assist students with direction, and make it possible for them to achieve their individual goals.
Mentone Grammar facilitates Art & Design exhibitions to showcase student work.
Students are also encouraged to be involved in external exhibitions and are regularly represented in the wider community.
