10 Visual Art 2 (Table C) 4 lessons per week for half a year (semester two)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Bryn Corkery

Year 10 Visual Art is split into two half year courses that develop skills, techniques and understanding of artistic conventions in traditional Art media such as Drawing, Painting, Design, Printmaking and Sculpture. The first and second semester courses cover different disciplines, allowing students to follow this course for an entire year without repeating any units. Students who opt to take art as a year long option have the opportunity to develop a wider range of skills and techniques to enhance their senior study. Students who take just one semester have priority in Year 11 Visual Art Subjects over those who have not.

These courses prepare students for both Year 11 Visual Art programmes: 11PN1- Painting and 11PH1- Photography and Design
