Year 12 - Studio Arts Unit 3-4

Studio Art – Unit three STUDIO PRACTICES and PROCESSES

This area of study focuses on the development and understanding of the stages of Studio Practice. Students explore individual ideas and identify sources of inspiration to be used as starting points for making art using a variety of different Art Forms. Students explore art making practices, techniques and applications that use a variety of methods to communicate and develop ideas. Students study artists, arts style and artworks for inspiration, ideas and understanding of cultural and historical contexts.

 

Outcome 1

Exploration Proposal

On completion of this unit the student is expected to prepare an Exploration Proposal and Work Plan that formulates the contents and parameters of an individual studio process and how the proposal will be undertaken.

 

Possible Art Forms Explored:

Painting, drawing, printmaking, textiles, sculpture, clay, collage, mixed media, digital media and photography.

 

Outcome 2

Studio Process

On completion of this unit the student is expected to progressively present an individual studio process recorded in written and visual form that produces a range of potential directions, and reflects the concepts and ideas documented in the exploration proposal and work plan.

 

Possible Art Forms Explored:

Painting, drawing, printmaking, textiles, sculpture, clay, collage, mixed media, digital media and photography.

 

Outcome 3

Artists and Studio Practices

On completion of this unit, students are expected to be able to examine the practice of at least two artists, with reference to a range of artworks by each artist, referencing the different historical and cultural context of each artwork.

 

Studio Art – Unit Four STUDIO PRACTICE and ART INDUSTRY CONTEXTS

Studio Practice and Art Industry Contexts

This area of study focuses on the planning, production, and evaluation required to refine and present artworks that link cohesively according to the ideas resolved in Unit 3. To support the creation of artworks, students present visual and written evaluation that explains why they selected a range of potential directions from Unit 3 to produce at least two finished artworks in Unit 4.

 

Outcome 1

Production and Presentation of Artworks

On completion of this unit the student is expected to present two completed artworks based on selected potential directions developed through the studio process, which demonstrates refinement and a clear link to the Exploration Proposal.

 

Possible Art Forms:

Painting, drawing, printmaking, textiles, sculpture, clay, collage, mixed media, digital media and photography.

 

Outcome 2

Evaluation

On completion of this unit the student is expected to reflect on the selection of potential directions that form the basis for the development of the artworks in Unit 4. Students produce a Focus Statement and written Reflection.

 

Outcome 3

Art Industry Contexts

On completion of this unit, students are expected to be able to compare the methods used by artists and considerations of curators in the preparation, presentation, conservation and promotion of specific artworks in at least two different art exhibitions. Comparisons of different exhibition venues and how artworks are preserved an conserved are also examined.

Can I do Textiles in Studio Arts?

|

Yes, you can choose the art form and materials you use.

 

By choosing Textiles to work with, art can be made in the form of sculpture, fashion, clothing or wearable art. The focus would then be on using Textiles materials/fabrics and not 2D or 3D art mediums such as painting, printing and drawing. Mixing materials is also possible.

 

There will be some common learning tasks where Textiles would not be used.
