The Visual Art program is to be taught for the full school year. The program has its origins in the AusVELS document which determines what elements of visual art to teach. Lara Lake Primary School provides a fully functional Art Room as well as a support room to teach art to all year levels. Each student is assessed against the AusVELS indicators and a mid and end of year report is provided.
