Students develop drawing and design expertise leading to a selection of two-dimensional media (painting, printmaking, textiles and mosaic). The unit includes research on art theory and practice through lectures and seminars, excursions to galleries and schools, leading to strategies for studio and classroom application.


Upon successful completion of this unit, students should be able to:

  • demonstrate continued development of their painting and printmaking skills and further development in selected areas such as textiles, mosaic, and drawing;
  • have an awareness of contemporary art practice and theory and a growing understanding of its relevance to their own studio practice, the school environment and the society in general;
  • have further developed an understanding of relevant terminology and become familiar with a wide range of literature;
  • have developed a personal language by investigation of a chosen theme, leading to one or two major art works.
