Want to be the next Pablo Picasso? Then this subject is for you! Visual Arts provides a background in 2D and 3D art and design practices with specific movements discussed e.g. Pop Art, Surrealism, Minimalism etc. Looking at contemporary and historical work will help you build on the existing skills and knowledge you require to create and analyse works of art and design. It aims to develop and enhance your creativity, artistic self confidence and problem solving skills as well as give you a broader awareness of the roles art and design play in both a historical, contemporary and local context.
You will attend exhibitions at the Adelaide Fringe, Art Gallery South Australia, SALA Festival and SACE Art Show with the intention of strengthening your analytical skills and art vocabulary as well as developing a greater appreciation for original art and design.
This course will prepare the students for Stage 2 Visual Arts.
