In Visual Arts, learning is geared around developing our studentsÔÇÖ technical disciplines to enable their creative capacities.
░─▓╩═╝┐ÔÔÇÖs programs seek to impart not only an authentic passion for art, but a rich ‘vocabulary’ with which our students can create it.
In Years K-6, Visual Arts are geared towards exploratory and experiential interactions┬áwith a broad range of materials, techniques and ideas.
In Years 7 and 8, the course becomes a vehicle for establishing foundational┬átargeted skills and knowledge that introduce students to new modes of art making┬áand thinking and build upon the creative thinking┬áand learning from the Years K-6 programs.
The elective courses in Years 9 and 10 then extend these foundations by exploring content with a more immersive┬áfocus. Students work towards mastering┬átechnical skills and exploring and responding to more complex concepts within Visual Arts, as well as Photographic and Digital Media.
In Years 11 and 12, the Visual Arts course takes a very different tack. Instead of┬ábuilding upon prior knowledge and experience, students in the Preliminary and HSC courses┬áaddress┬ácontent and structure in a more┬áautonomous┬áway. They are challenged with driving their own creative authorship, culminating in┬áa full body of work submitted for their HSC.┬á
