Stage 4

Year 7 and 8 Visual Arts

Students will explore a variety of media in 2D, 3D and 4D forms, which include:

  • Drawing
  • Computer & Digital Art
  • Painting
  • Graphics
  • Photography
  • Ceramics
  • Printmaking

Students are introduced to a broad range of media and learn skills that they will further develop for potential use across all subject areas. These lessons introduce the students to the basics of art appreciation and to the fundamental skills required to generate ideas, problem solve, take risks and develop communication and collaboration skills.

Students are required to keep a Visual Arts Process Diary. It is a record of their ideas, imaginings and experiences throughout each unit of work. Students are also given the opportunity to broaden their artistic experience with visits to Gosford Regional Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of NSW. Exposure to the art world and the global art scene is also integral to the course, with opportunities for students to communicate and learn from both Australian and International artists.
