Iona Presentation College

Production Arts

At Iona Presentation College, the Production Arts suite of subjects provides our students with many opportunities to share, cultivate and convey creative ideas with others within an innovative, state-of-the-art learning space.

The extensive Arts program at the Junior School provides a rich education from an early age. Research has shown that early intervention in the arts increases a student’s confidence, intellectual abilities across learning areas, problem-solving skills and general life skills. 

The Junior School Visual Arts program is structured to build on skills and techniques beginning in Pre-Primary. Students enjoy exploring and experimenting with a wide range of mediums including drawing, painting, collage, ceramics, textiles, woodwork and mixed media.

From Year 7, students are presented with many disciplines and techniques for the first time. By the time they reach Year 12, they have become independent visual artists presenting sophisticated portfolios of work.

In the Production Arts area, we strive to ensure each, and every, girl feels welcomed, empowered and encouraged to find her individual talents and pursue her own original ideas.

Students at Iona have the opportunity to experience a range of studio areas in our multi-purpose facilities: Painting, Sculpture, Ceramics, Glass, Printmaking, Photography, Media and Design. Through a diverse range of mediums, girls have the opportunity to explore their ideas by using direct experience, observation, curiosity, research, imagination and emotion. They are encouraged to interpret and reflect upon both their own work, that of their peers and also the works of contemporary Australian and International artists, designers and filmmakers with an analytical eye.

Our aim in the Production Arts Learning Area is to provide our students with a repertoire of appropriate skills, techniques and processes to facilitate maximum participation in, and understanding of, the world of Visual Arts, Media and Design.
