Fostering Creativity and Self-Expression In this course students build on the skills of previous years and develop their own voice as a student artist. They are taught new skills, techniques and processes in different studio areas such as drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, new technologies. They select and use those skills to produce artworks that make personal statements based around their own interests and points of view, allowing them to express their ideas and thoughts and work creatively. The art room offers an environment that fosters collaboration, inspires creativity, self-direction and self-expression.  This course is an excellent foundation for possible future studies in Year 11 and 12 ATAR or General Visual Art.

Visual Arts is a great subject that teaches you both practical and creative skills that can be applied to many other subjects. I enjoyed my Year 10 Visual Arts course as we had the opportunity to craft with more mediums like clay and we were able to create quite advanced pieces. I would highly recommend studying Visual Arts if you are inventive or have a passion for creating. Eve Miragliotta The Year 10 visual art course was extremely beneficial and fun. I learned how to appreciate art and its importance in society and also learn how to develop a design process. I had a lot of fun being creative and experiencing new art mediums. Keely Maher
