Environmental Art programs at Bournda have been specifically designed to assist students in learning about their natural environment. The following art activities have been developed for Stage 3 students.
An environmental art program is designed to develop skills in the following areas:
- Collection and observation of material for investigation
- Classification of objects
- Recording, drawing or making models of objects
- An interest and understanding of the natural environment
