Level 1 Visual Art

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mx R. Goldstein

Recommended Prior Learning

To be accepted for this course it is recommended students have taken Visual Art in Year 10.

This course is about discovering and making artworks. This is a very practical, hands-on course. Students explore combinations of art areas that include drawing, collage, painting, printmaking, and mixed media, and extend their art into three-dimensional work. 

Students follow a programme, but essentially create their own theme and developmental focus. Students are encouraged to be innovative, study artist role models for inspiration, and explore art-making which is relevant to their own interests. 

There are four internal credits and 12 external credits. The external two-panel Art exam is a cumulative display of the year’s work. Students can be offered an optional additional four literacy credits for an artist research assignment if they are not undertaking Digital Art. If a student is completing the Digital Art course, they must sit the exam in this course.
