I have always enjoyed drawing and a variety of artistic activities, so I knew year 8 Visual Arts would be a great way to extend these skills. Year 8 Visual Arts advanced my skills and knowledge about art in a way that was extremely beneficial, I loved it. Last year was my first time painting on a canvas, and thanks to that experience, painting is now an art medium that I love to use and continue to work in. The Year 8 course taught me a lot about the codes and conventions of art and I now use that understanding in Year 9 Visual Arts. I definitely suggest that you choose Year 8 Visual Arts, it’s an awesome experience!
