Throughout Semester 1, students will collaborate, communicate and work independently and within a team.  They will learn from, provide feedback and contribute to the learning of others.  Students will be encouraged to ask questions, offer opinions, make connections and identify patterns in artworks.  They will be encouraged and expected to always have a go.


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 finalise their artworks to present.


The learning focus for this semester will be ‘Disturbia’ / ‘Haunted Themes’.   Students will work through a wide range of activities including both 2D and 3D artworks.  Students will have the opportunity to create with various paints, photography, markers, collage, ink, moulding materials, craft, and textiles.  Completed artworks will be kept in a student folio that is sent home at the end of the semester.
