Art, Design and Photography
Art and Design develops students’ skills in a range of art techniques and processes using line, colour, texture and form. These are not just technical skills, but skills in seeing and expression from an aesthetic perspective. The subject also develops in students a historical and cultural perspective of a variety of visual art forms, including painting, printing and sculpture. It explores ideas about what makes art aesthetically pleasing or satisfying, and it develops capacity for judging and explaining judgements, as well as being able to participate in broader philosophical conversations about, for example, what constitutes art. Art enables students to respond and create in a personal way.
