Throughout Term 2 students will continue to collaborate, communicate and work independently within a team and learn from, provide feedback and contribute to the learning of others.  Students will learn to ask the right questions, make connections and identify patterns in artworks.  They will be encouraged to respond to unfamiliar or challenging information and be encouraged to learn.  Learning in visual arts involves students making and responding to artworks.  This will be done through using their creativity, imagination and critical thinking skills combined with an honest, resilient, hard-working and respectful understanding of other people and cultures. Students engage with and develop knowledge of visual arts, skills, techniques and processes and use materials as they explore a range of forms, styles and contexts.  Students will be encouraged to see the relationship between effort and achievement as they plan to present their artwork for this year’s Art Show.
