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.

The creative and performing arts faculty at Blakehurst High School seeks to enrich, support and nurture our students' lifelong learning by educating their minds and fostering a sense of creativity. The music, visual arts and drama departments offer an extensive range of disciplines supported by a dynamic team of specialist teaching staff.
