Do you enjoy working with different art mediums? What makes a good composition? In year 9 Art you will have the opportunity to explore a range of art materials and develop your own art style. Learn new skills in drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and mixed media. Be inspired by the techniques used by artists both past and present. Learn techniques in creative thinking and use the design process and your imagination to create artworks that explore different themes and subjects.

Successful completion of this subject is indicated by the completion of the following class work:

  • Folio of completed artworks
  • Up to date and neatly presented Visual Diary that contains all notes, drawings of trial designs, techniques and visual references
