Imagine switching on your TV to watch a Netflix series and only getting a blank screen? Imagine going to turn on the radio or your music playlist and hearing nothing but silence? Imagine walking into a room with no photos, posters, displays or artwork and seeing nothing but a blank solid colour wall?
In Expressive Arts, Year 8 students explored the "Big Idea" of what the world would look like without the Arts. Students contemplated and discussed what life would be like without music, books, TV and films, fashion design, computer games, dancing, architecture, furniture design and artwork! Having considered what life would look like without what some people call the "non-essentials", they quickly realised how dull and boring and dismal a world without the Arts would be and just how important they are to the enrichment of our daily lives.
