Course Outline

The Visual Arts ATAR course encompasses the practice and theory of the broad areas of art, craft and design. Students have opportunities to express their imagination, develop personal imagery, develop skills and engage in the making and presentation of artwork.

The Visual Arts ATAR course encourages students to develop problem-solving skills together with creative and analytical ways of thinking.

Students will study two semester long themes, “Differences” and “Identities”. The course is separated into two equally weighted areas, Art Making and Art Interpretation.  Within Art Making students will be expected to produce a visual diary exploring drawing, design, influences, media testing, documentation and reflection and a final work/s. Art Interpretation encompasses two areas, Critical Analysis and Investigation.

Tasks will include analysing artworks, learning and applying art language, exploring art movements, artists influence upon art history and the students own work, writing artist statements, analytic and investigative essays, and exams.
