Foundation Statements Foundation Statements in the Creative Arts set out a clear picture of the knowledge, skills and understandings that each student should develop at each stage of learning. They encompass syllabus outcomes, content and scope of learning in Creative Arts. The Creative Arts Foundation Statements now replace Stage Statements in the Creative Arts K-6 Syllabus.
The Creative Arts K-6 Syllabus is organised in two main sections: Outcomes for each artform from Early Stage 1 to Stage 3 Content for each artform from Early Stage 1 to Stage 3
