Visual Arts Stage 6 provides opportunities for students to experience and appreciate the different aspects of the artworld.  Through participating in excursions, a range of artmaking techniques as well engaging in critical and historical studies to enhance their ability to understand, analyse and write about art, students are able to develop meaningful interpretations of their lives and the world around them.

Art Making

Year 11 – the students create two Bodies of Work

Year 12 – the students create one Body of Work

In both years, the Visual Arts Diary is a record of the process of developing the Body of Work.

Art Criticism and Art History:

Students will learn about art and artists from a critical and historical perspective.  They will learn to analyse artworks in order to write short and extended responses as well as an art based essay.

Students will sit a written exam.
