Stage 5


Artwork

Visual Arts

Students will develop the knowledge, understanding and skills:

• to make artworks informed by their understanding of practice, the conceptual framework and the frames

• to critically and historically interpret art informed by their understanding of practice, the conceptual framework and the frames.

Values and attitudes

Content is organised in three broad areas as it connects with artmaking and critical and historical interpretations and explanations of art. These areas are: Practice, Conceptual Framework and Frames.

Practice relates to students' artmaking and critical and historical studies of art. It describes artistic activity demonstrating the ability to make suitable choices from a repertoire of knowledge and skills. Practice respects the different views that circulate and are exchanged in and about the visual arts. The Conceptual Framework identifies the functional and intentional relations of the artist, artwork, world and audience as the agencies of the artworld. The Frames – subjective, cultural, structural and postmodern – account for different points of view, values and belief in and about the visual arts. The syllabus implementation patterns allow for 100 hours and 200 hours of study.

 

Visual Design

This course is designed to enable students to develop and enjoy practical and conceptual autonomy as a visual designer in the making of visual design artworks and understand and value the different beliefs and contexts that affect meaning and significance in visual design artworks. Students will develop knowledge, understanding and skills:

• to make visual design artworks informed by their understanding of practice, the conceptual framework and the frames

• to critically and historically interpret visual design artworks informed by their understanding of practice, the conceptual framework and the frames.
