Course Outline

The General Visual Arts course encourages students to engage in traditional, modern and contemporary art forms. Students will have the opportunities to express their imagination, develop personal imagery, develop skills and engage in the making and presentation of final artworks. Students will produce ideas for their work based upon drawings, research and investigation of artists and art movements. All work produced in the course will be presented in a journal for assessment.

The course is divided into two units, each of one semester duration.
