Students will identify, select and structure visual elements, communicating ideas and solving problems in the making of art.
- External Folio Submission - Students will generate an individually conceived theme based on a Site Investigation.
- Self Portrait Internal submission - Students will be introduced to a specific range of photographic techniques including studio lighting and photoshop effects using established artist models.
