Abstract

The Visual Arts are essential to interpreting culture and introduction to the Visual Arts often occurs within primary school. A mixed methods study was undertaken at a Western Australian university across the Arts subjects: dance, drama, media Arts, music and Visual Arts. This paper reports the quantitative findings of the Visual Arts section of the investigation, examining students’ prior Visual Arts experiences and their self-efficacy to deliver the Visual Arts on graduating their degree. The research underscores the importance of positive Visual Arts experiences to build self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation among pre-service primary teachers.
