Stage 2 Visual art

In Visual Arts students will express their development of ideas, research, analysis, exploration, experimentation with media and technique, through the resolution and production of two practical self-developed Art works.  It will have an emphasis on: visual thinking, investigation, the ability to synthesise concepts, apply them, reflect on their own learning, refine technical skills and produce imaginative solutions.

Visual Study
A Visual Study is an exploration of, or experimentation with, one or more styles, ideas, concepts, methods, techniques, or technologies based on research and analysis of Visual Art practitioners from contemporary or historical/cultural contexts.  Students are to provide an A3 folio with 20/10 examples of their visual explorations and theoretical background and analysis through annotated comments that link Art movements or cultural contexts.  This is the theory component of the course.  An appointed SACE assessor will make the final decision about the quality of the Visual Study with reference to the South Australian performance standards.
