Year 9 - Visual Art: 3D Art/Sculpture (Elective)


Students in Year 9 at MFGSC may elect to take 3D Art/Sculpture for one semester. The course is divided, according to AUSVELS, into two learning areas: Creating and Making and Exploring and Responding.

Creating and Making:
Students draw on their knowledge and understanding of Design Elements and Design Principles found in three dimensional Art to create their own three dimensional artworks/sculpture.  Students create designs based on different sources of inspiration, through design development, and examining and analysing recognised artworks by established artists.

Students have the opportunity to use different materials such as timber, clay, metal, wire, and card and, assorted methods to make 3D artwork or sculptures using construction, casting, modeling, assemblage and carving methods and techniques. Students generate design options from different sources of inspiration and use a variety of methods to create their design ideas, including ICT.

Possible project work may include construction, jewellery making, clay modelling, metal casting, assemblage and carving sculpture.

Exploring and Responding:
Students research, examine and respond to the artwork of recognised artists and Art styles to develop understanding of how design elements, cultural, environmental and historical influences affect artists in their art making.
