12 Art Painting
Teacher in Charge: Mrs B. Spencer
Painting is an ever-changing exploration of media, techniques and concepts. This course builds on processes, and techniques initiated in Year 11 Art. Students’ ability to communicate visually is enhanced by a personalised program of study.
Students will select and structure visual elements, communicate ideas and solve problems through making art works.
Students will be required to complete two major practical assignments. The assignments will include research on aspects of painting practice, journal documentation of related explorations in drawing and a final folio submission. Students will investigate a specific theme, identifying and generating their own individual ideas.
