Entry Recommendations: Satisfactory completion of Year 9 Visual Art or Design, as well as a keen interest in Visual Art.

This course will be a preparation for Stage 1 Visual Art and is based on learning about Portraiture with an emphasis on the Australian and Global Art, Artists and Art movements. Students will learn new ways to make resolved Art works with Art processes including; stencilling, watercolour painting, acrylic painting and drawing techniques. The theory taught develops a solid understanding of inquiry based visual learning. The main topic draws upon how is the notion of ‘identity in Portraiture’ expressed through visual symbolism?. Critical analysis of artworks is taught by writing the Visual Art four stage plan, in order to respond and connect to historical and cultural contexts.
