Subject description​

Visual Art is a powerful and pervasive means which students use to make images and objects, communicating aesthetic meaning and understanding from informed perspectives. In a world of increasing technologies, knowledge and understanding of how meanings are constructed is critical to being a consumer or producer of images. 

What it will help stud​ents do

Visual Art uses an inquiry model, enabling multi-modal thinking and individual responses through researching, developing, resolving and reflecting. ​

  • Making informed judgements. ​

​​Out of class requireme​​​​nts
