Course Description

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.
