Australian Curriculum Teaching Resources

Years 9 and 10

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
  • refine their personal aesthetic through working and responding perceptively and conceptually as an artist, craftsperson, designer or audience
  • identify and explain, using appropriate visual language, how artists and audiences interpret artworks through explorations of different viewpoints
  • research and analyse the characteristics, qualities, properties and constraints of materials, technologies and processes across a range of forms, styles, practices and viewpoints
  • adapt, manipulate, deconstruct and reinvent techniques, styles and processes to make visual artworks that are cross-media or cross-form
  • 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
  • reflect on the development of different traditional and contemporary styles and how artists can be identified through the style of their artworks as they explore different forms in visual arts
  • identify the social relationships that have developed between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other cultures in Australia, and explore how these are reflected in developments of forms and styles in visual arts
  • use historical and conceptual explanations to critically reflect on the contribution of visual arts practitioners as they make and respond to visual artworks
  • adapt ideas, representations and practices from selected artists and use them to inform their own personal aesthetic when producing a series of artworks that are conceptually linked, and present their series to an audience
  • 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.

Achievement Standard

By the end of Year 10, students evaluate how representations communicate artistic intentions in artworks they make and view. They evaluate artworks and displays from different cultures, times and places. They analyse connections between visual conventions, practices and viewpoints that represent their own and others? ideas. They identify influences of other artists on their own artworks.

Students manipulate materials, techniques and processes to develop and refine techniques and processes to represent ideas and subject matter in their artworks.
