Art at Berendale School.

Students have the opportunity to make and study painting, printmaking, drawing, digital art, ceramics, sculptures, textiles and design. They take pride in and integrate their strengths and interests as a positive part of their enjoyment and learning in Art.

Create and Respond.

In Year 7-10, students experiment with a broad range of traditional and contemporary materials and techniques and generate ideas inspired by local and international artists and designers.

In VCAL, Year 11 and 12 students develop their artistic voice and create artworks for their school and local communities.

Year 11 and 12 students can also elect to complete an Art Industry Elective subject to prepare a portfolio for a pathway in the creative industries.

Enrichment and Exhibitions.

Berendale School takes pride in celebrating student learning and achievements in Art.

Every year, students prepare and exhibit their artworks in the school’s Annual Art Show. Families and friends are invited to see their artworks.

Students have the opportunities to display and present their artworks in a wide range of exhibitions and galleries in their local community. Students have exhibited their artworks at Kingston Arts Centre, Bayside City Council, Royal Melbourne Show, OzKids Art Program and Brunswick Street Gallery.

Our students have won awards for their artwork in:

  • Royal Melbourne Show
  • Artz Blitz Competition at Kingston Arts
  • Bayside Youth Art Exhibition at Bayside City Council

Excellence in Art Education.

Berendale School is committed to inclusive art education and advancing opportunities for young people with a disability to access and succeed in the arts.

We connect with many learning communities and art organisations to develop high-quality art education programs and to enrich our students’ artistic experiences. These opportunities include artist in residence programs, artist workshops, gallery visits, display of artworks in public spaces and invitations to attend exhibition openings.

We thank our partners, Arts Access Victoria, Kingston Arts, Bayside City Council Youth Services and Brighton Grammar School for their ongoing collaboration.
