Year 7 Art
Theory and history study beginning with pre-historic art.
Practical work centred upon drawing skills with other media such as painting, printmaking and pottery incorporated.
The design elements and principles are heavily emphasised.
Year 8 Art
Year 8 Art builds on the processes and techniques developed at year 7 level. Some revision of the Art elements and principles will be necessary at the beginning of this semester long program, but these must always be emphasised and referred to in each lesson.
Artists and styles are the hub of this year level’s art work. Both theory and practical work examine a number of artists, discuss their respective lives and work and attempt to emulate their styles as a way of developing practical skills.
