Students spend the majority of their time planning and making two individual artworks that they develop from overarching themes. The course caters for students who wish to explore the following mediums: painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media, video, textiles, animation, photography, printmaking, glass, or any combination of these.

Guest speakers, artists and Art teachers work as a team to coach and mentor students through the practical and theoretical aspects of the course. Students don’t need to be overly proficient in any one area when they enter the course, as they will develop skills along the way.

The Year 11 Visual Arts course is divided into two main themes.

Unit 1: Differences

Unit 2: Identities

Prerequisite:  Students should achieve a minimum of a C grade in Art or Fine Art in Year 10 Art to be accepted into Year 11 Visual Art (ATAR).  Students who have not completed an Arts course in Year 10 are still eligible but will require an interview with the Subject Coordinator.

Pathway:  Units 1 & 2 in Visual Arts (ATAR) lead to Units 3 & 4 (ATAR) in Year 12.

This is a fun course that will give you the skills to design and construct stencils, use paint pens and aerosols to draw and spray images, make transfers and create your own ‘Low Brow’ sculpture.
