What will I learn?

Studying Painting will enable students to make meaning from images or from objects with a theme they identify themselves by generating, analysing, clarifying, and extending ideas. Students in the visual arts learn to be creative problem solvers who give form to knowledge and experience. They will study and explore a range of painting techniques and ideas from established practice (artist models) of their choosing to apply to their own works. Students will learn to research, analyse, critique and interpret how artworks are constructed and presented to communicate meanings. They are able to explore both traditional and digital methods of painting and can extend skills in a range of materials, techniques, and technologies.
