Visual Arts A & B

Stage 1 IVAA10

Description

Visual Arts engages students in conceptual, practical, analytical and contextual aspects of creative human endeavour. It emphasises visual thinking and investigation and the ability to develop ideas and concepts, refine technical skills and produce imaginative solutions. An integral part of Visual Arts is the documentation of visual thinking. Students learn to communicate personal ideas, beliefs, values, thoughts, feelings, concepts and opinions, provide observations of their lived or imagined experiences and represent these in visual form.

By analysing other practitioners’ works of art, students gain knowledge and understanding of their styles, concepts, content, forms and conventions and learn to respond to these works in informed ways.

Of particular interest in this subject are past and present influences that impact on the visual arts: local and global events, social and political values, different perspectives provided by the diversity of cultural groups, and the styles, aesthetic values and groups of practitioners of particular times and places.

The focus capabilities for this subject are communication and personal development.
