In Visual Arts, students:
build on their awareness of how and why artists, craftspeople and designers realise their ideas through different visual representations, practices, processes and viewpoints
extend their thinking, understanding and use of perceptual and conceptual skills
continue to use and apply appropriate visual language and visual conventions with increasing complexity
consider the qualities and sustainable properties of materials, techniques, technologies and processes and combine these to create and produce solutions to their artworks
consider society and ethics, and economic, environmental and social factors
exhibit their artworks individually or collaboratively, basing the selection on a concept or theme
document the evolution of selected art styles and associated theories and/or ideologies
reflect on the ‘cause and effect’ of time periods, artists and art styles influencing later artists and their artworks
draw on artworks from a range of cultures, times and locations as they experience visual arts
explore the influences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and those of the Asia region
learn that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have converted oral records to other technologies
learn that over time there has been further development of techniques used in traditional and contemporary styles as they explore different forms in visual arts
identify social relationships that have developed between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and other cultures in Australia, and explore how these are reflected in developments in visual arts
design, create and evaluate visual solutions to selected themes and/or concepts through a variety of visual arts forms, styles, techniques and/or processes as they make and respond to visual artworks
develop an informed opinion about artworks based on their research of current and past artists
examine their own culture and develop a deeper understanding of their practices as an artist who holds individual views about the world and global issues
acknowledge that artists and audiences hold different views about selected artworks, given contexts of time and place, and established ideologies
extend their understanding of safe visual arts practices and choose to use sustainable materials, techniques and technologies
build on their experience from the previous band to develop their understanding of the roles of artists and audiences.
By the end of Year 8, students identify and analyse how other artists use visual conventions and viewpoints to communicate ideas and apply this knowledge in their art making. They explain how an artwork is displayed to enhance its meaning. They evaluate how they and others are influenced by artworks from different cultures, times and places.
Students plan their art making in response to exploration of techniques and processes used in their own and others? artworks. They demonstrate use of visual conventions, techniques and processes to communicate meaning in their artworks.
