Gifted Art Program
A highly successful program for Gifted Art Students is offered at Year 8. Entry into this program is a competitive process consisting of an application and interview, when students are in Year 7. Click here for more information about the program and to view examples of our students' work.
Students' Visual Art work is exhibited throughout the school. Student work can be seen in murals, mosaics and sculptures around the school grounds and other work is exhibited in foyers, classrooms and corridors. Visual Art students continue to support SALA events raising the profile of their quality and skill within the local community.
Music, Dance and Drama performances occur throughout the year. Students perform at formal occasions such as the Awards Ceremonies and at other school functions such as the School Council AGM, Peace Day, Open Day, and they also put on Performing Arts Showcases for members of the school community, parents and friends.
Artists in Residence Program
Students have the opportunity to work with our Artists in Residence Program in a range of alternative media. In the past students have worked with a Balinese Sculptor, an Indigenous Silk Artist, a muralist and a Metal Artist.
Year 12 Art Studio
Seaton High School has a dedicated space for Year 12 Visual Art students. This space is utilised during study lines, lunchtime and after school, and is used for workshops during school holidays. A dedicated space assists students in managing their own time and in meeting course requirements and due dates. Students are able to leave their art work securely in the Studio. The Studio helps promote and develop a sense of ownership amongst the Year 12 Art students and enables them to work collaboratively to problem solve and develop their skills as young artists.
Each Year, Year 11 and 12 Visual Art students are given the opportunity to travel to Melbourne or Sydney to expand their knowledge of the Visual Arts through visiting a range of Art Galleries and exhibition spaces such as the Powerhouse Museum and Brett Whitely Studio
