VISUAL ARTS

Either Semester

Students explore a variety of methods and media including observational drawing, acrylic painting, watercolour and 3D techniques to represent their own artistic intentions. They learn techniques of perspective, colour theory and composition and use these skills to create various artworks generally based on the natural wilderness landscape of Timbertop and their relationship with this environment. Emphasis is placed on analysing a range of artworks from contemporary and past times to explore differing viewpoints and enrich students’ art-making. There is also a focus on design in which the developmental process is taught and ideas are developed, extended and refined to respond to given briefs. The visual diary is an important component in this process of developing ideas and art language, recording experimentation and evaluating both the process and finished product.
