Year 10 - Visual Art

SUBJECT/UNIT DESCRIPTION

Students in Year 10 at MFGSC may elect to take Visual ART for one semester.

Design Elements and Design Principles used to create two and three-dimensional Art are a major focus in this elective. Through design development, creating artwork and examining and analysing recognised artworks by established artists, students create their own finished art works. They explore and trial the application of different mediums, techniques and equipment for drawing, painting, printmaking, photography and sculpture. The ‘Design Process’ is a major part of this elective and each student is required to develop a folio of visual work that represents their art making experience.

Students have the opportunity to explore design options and create independent artwork.  A studio practice approach is undertaken for all design work.

The Victorian Curriculum is the basis of the content covered in Visual Art. The four learning Areas are:
