The Tatachilla Arts Academy: Compelling stories, brilliantly told.
The Tatachilla Arts Academy is an audition-based individualised arts pathway. The Arts Academy focuses on engaging students as emerging artists and supporting them in the development of their arts specialisation. In addition, it provides students with the opportunity to create meaningful industry and community connections to adequately prepare them for careers in the industry beyond school. An individualised pathway involves staff, students and their families working together to create a learning program made up of a combination of curriculum, extra-curricular and interdisciplinary Arts offerings. Students attend their core curriculum subject for their Arts major during timetabled lessons and compliment this with a variety of extra-curricular experiences to extend the development of their artistic skills. These skills are then brought together during focused Arts Academy time where Arts Academy students engage in the creation of interdisciplinary arts projects and workshops with industry professionals.
