Learning in Visual Arts involves students making and responding to artworks, drawing on the world as a source of ideas. 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.
The curriculum aims to develop the student’s confidence, curiosity, imagination and enjoyment and a personal aesthetic through engagement with visual arts making, viewing, discussing, analysing, interpreting and evaluating.
The Visual Arts are structured around the following four strands:
Explore and Express Ideas
Visual Arts Practices
Present and Perform
Respond and Interpret
