Creative arts

In Creative Arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of music, photography and visual arts where they 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. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.

The Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) faculty at Riverstone High School is an innovative group of enthusiastic and highly experienced teachers who are dedicated to providing all students with the opportunity, support and encouragement to explore their creative talents and reach their full potential.

We foster opportunities for students to exhibit their works and perform on stage, including the annual 'In Bloom' and 'Showcase'  performance evenings, 'Riverbald Prize' Art exhibition and submissions to regional and national competitions such as 'Design an Ad', 'Moran Photographic Prize' and 'Snapshot Teenage Photographic Prize'.
