Art Department Program  

7/8 Junior Art

Junior Art aims to foster an understanding of the role of Art in our own culture and environment as well as in other cultures – past, present and future. Year 7/8 Art encourages the development of:
  • Creative expression
  • Visual literacy
  • Technical skills
  • Knowledge of artists, art movements, past and present cultures, historical perspectives and contexts

9/10 Visual Art

Visual art is a powerful and pervasive means of communication. The aim of the Junior Visual Art Taster is to provide students with the opportunity to experience the content and practical exercises associated with the Year 11 Visual Art course. Students completing the taster should develop the means to represent their ideas, thoughts, feelings and observations of the world in visual formats. Year 10 Visual Art encourages further development of:
  • Creative expression
  • Making skills - visual literacy
  • Appraising skills
  • Knowledge of artists, art movements, cultures (past, present and future), historical perspectives and contexts.

10 Visual Art Taster

This subject is available to students in Semester 2 and is an introduction to the Year 11/12 General subject Visual Art. Students will study contemporary art practice and the role of the artist in society. This is the foundation for students to create two and three dimensional artworks that directly communicate with the viewer to present an intended message or concept. In preparation for the external exams that are a feature of new SATE syllabus students will sit an exam at the end of this program.

10 Visual Arts in Practice Taster

This subject is available to students in Semester 2 and is an introduction to the Year 11/12 Applied subject of Visual Arts in Practice. Visual art is a powerful and pervasive means of communication. The aim of the Visual Arts in Practice Taster is to provide students with the opportunity to experience the content and practical exercises associated with Year 11 Visual Arts in Practice. Students completing the taster should develop the means to represent their ideas, thoughts, feelings and observations of the world in visual formats. Year 10 TVP encourages further development of:
  • Creative expression
  • Technical skills
  • Visual literacy

11/12 Visual Art (General subject)

In Senior Visual Art students define and solve visual problems by using visual language and making skills. Making processes involve selecting, exploring, manipulating and exploiting materials, techniques and processes in particular media areas (painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics) to communicate meanings.  Visual Art provides students with opportunities to understand and appreciate the role of visual art in past and present traditions and cultures, as well as the contributions of contemporary visual artists and their aesthetic, historical and cultural influences. Students interact with artists, artworks, institutions and communities to enrich their experiences and understandings of their own and others' art practices. 
Students have opportunities to construct knowledge and communicate personal interpretations by working as both artist and audience. They use their imagination and creativity to innovatively solve problems and experiment with visual language and expression.
 

11/12 Visual Arts in Practice (Applied subject)

Visual Arts in Practice can be taken as a subject in its own right; however it is also complementary to Senior Visual Art. Students studying Visual Arts in Practice develop skills in the practical application of Art and Craft to real life situations. For example, students may take an old piece of furniture and, using creative paint and fabric decoration techniques, give the furniture a ‘new lease on life’, or they may create wearable art. In Visual Arts in Practice there is also an emphasis on collaborative and cooperative work practices and community arts. Assessment for Visual Arts in Practice is based on practical work with a single assignment task each year. This is a useful subject for student apprentices and trainees as the emphasis is on the physical act of making art.
