Creative arts

Further information for choosing Visual Arts as a subject (PDF 4 MB)

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts.

Studying the creative arts, students 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 including drama, dance, photography and visual design. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.


There are several components to the creative arts faculty at Woolgoolga High School. These can be divided into the areas of dance, drama, music and visual arts. The associated pages provide more specific information about these areas.
