Key Study Areas
The Year 7 Visual Art course exposes students to the elements and principles of art, through a creative study of varying drawing and painting techniques, as well as three dimensional forms such as clay. Students use a visual diary to investigate, explore and record ideas. The creation of practical artwork is focused on both two and three dimensional processes and will result in final artworks that demonstrate creative scope and technical skills.
The Year 8 Visual Art course will further develop students understanding of elements and principles whilst building on skills learned in the previous year. Students will also be introduced to a new range of art forms, skills, techniques and technologies, providing experiences to make informed choices for their Year 9 electives. This exciting course provides students with the opportunity to develop their own ideas and demonstrate creativity represented in an organised visual diary.
In year 9, Visual Arts is an elective where students can focus on Media, Photo Art, Visual Art, and Visual Communication Design.
