Content

This course is based on two strands of the Australian Curriculum, Making and Responding. 

 Making focuses on the development of artistic skills and processes, students will develop practical skills, through the exploration of materials and processes while learning to apply these skills to various types of 2D and 3D art-making. 

Responding focuses on developing student’s ability to communicate about art. This is achieved through a variety of written forms which may include:

  • Planning their art-making in both written and visual forms (Folio)
  • Identify how other artists use visual elements to communicate ideas
  • Reflection on and evaluation of artworks 
  • Development of knowledge and skills in relation to art vocabulary

Assessment

Tasks may include:

  • Principles of drawing or painting (observational, perspective, portraiture)
  • Painting Acrylic or Watercolour (incorporating colour theory)
  • 3D construction (various materials) 

Each assessment task will consist of the following three components:

  • Development work (Folio)
  • Practical (Final Artwork)
  • Analysis, reflection and or evaluation of practice (Theory)

Additional Information

It is an expectation that all students undertaking art are equipped with basic drawing materials (pencil, eraser, ruler) and have an A4 artbook.
