This subject has been structured to help students to develop skills and techniques, in preparation for undertaking Stage 2 Visual Arts. It provides a background in 2D and 3D art practices with specific movements discussed e.g. Pop Art, Surrealism, as well as looking at contemporary and historical works of art.
This course builds on existing skills and knowledge that students require to create and analyse works of art. It aims to develop and enhance student creativity, artistic self-confidence, problem-solving skills and a broader awareness of the role art plays in both a historical, contemporary and local context.
Students will attend exhibitions at the Adelaide Fringe, Art Gallery South Australia, SALA Festival and SACE Art Show with the intention of strengthening their analytical skills and art vocabulary as well as a greater appreciation for original art and artists.
This course will prepare the students for Stage 2 Visual Arts.
