Visual Art
Students have the opportunity to explore diverse ideas and to further their skills in Visual Art with two co-curricular options, Art Project Group and Model Club.


Art Project Group

Art Project Group is open to students in Years 4-12 to contribute to college projects that reflect IB philosophy and that extend each boy’s classroom experience.  Various media, styles and techniques are explored through the design process and installation of each project.  The small group environment encourages positive interaction between students of different ages and abilities.

 

Model Club

This co-curricular program is offered to students interested in taking the opportunity to partake in model making.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to work with model enthusiasts and build their own kit model. This activity will provide students with the opportunity to learn and develop new and existing skills. The participants will create, in the time provided, their own model from a pre-purchased model kit.

The Model Club invites students from Years 4 to 12 who are interested in participating in this exciting activity to come and join. Those who wish to participate do not have to be Art students, and do not need prior experience. All are welcome.

So as to ensure satisfaction it is recommended that participants purchase their own kit model and bring that to work on.

Speech and Communication

Lessons are taken individually or in pairs or trios and focus on clear speech, vocal range, text interpretation, public speaking, interpersonal communication skills, presentation skills and performance. Students can also choose to develop individual acting skills. Students are provided performance opportunities throughout the school year in a variety of forums.

Additionally, students can elect to take examinations to benchmark their development with Trinity Guildhall or the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB). These examinations in the past have provided students with post-school pathways into tertiary education. Lessons can take place during class time on a rotational timetable.

Drama

Group Drama classes are offered after school in certain year levels. Various dramatic forms are explored such as creative movement, improvisation, mime, clowning, play-building, process and collage drama and play production. Presentation opportunities are provided throughout the school year. An enquiry-based approach to learning is valued with a focus on process, not just product. During lessons students practise a variety of appropriate social skills in a safe and supportive environment. MBBC Group Drama

Both drama and Speech and Communication programmes are conducted by qualified and experienced tutors. For further information about either program please contact the current program teacher, Mrs Karen Neale by email kazneale@outlook.com.
