Year 10 Visual Art
Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Mrkusic
The Year 10 Visual Arts course is designed to stimulate and excite young creative minds. Students will explore a wide variety of media and techniques intended to broaden their skill base. The course content focuses on local, cultural and topical themes. Engagement, learning technical skills and the enjoying the creative process is emphasized - not assessment. Topics may include 3D construction; self portraits; clay modelling and plaster/latex casting; printmaking; figure drawing; paint technique and mixed media collage. Visual Art is an area of study that encourages practical learning as well as academic rigour from Year 9 through to Year 13. Making Art is dependent on sequential learning, physical time and labour. All students are encouraged and supported in developing these skills and clear timelines are signposted at regular intervals.
