Year 13 Painting (13PAI)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Harman


Achievement of:- AS91311 (ARTC2.2 - Use drawing methods to apply knowledge of conventions appropriate to painting) and AS91321 (ARTC2.4 - Produce a systematic body of work that shows understanding of art making conventions and ideas within painting) and approval from HOD and classroom teacher.  

Students who wish to enroll who have not completed these Achievement Standards may apply and may be offered a course specified by the Department.

Year 13 Painting will further develop students creative and critical thinking skills in the Visual Arts.  Students have an opportunity to establish their own style and practice based on the study of other artists and artworks.

It is recommended that students enter this course with a fluency in the practical skills used in previous years.  Although these will be developed during the course of study, the syllabus does not specifically focus on building painting and drawing ability alone.

Students undertaking External AS91456 (ARPA3.4 - Produce a systematic body of work that integrates conventions and regenerates ideas within painting practice) will be expected to commit a certain amount of time outside of class hours as the standards require them to be undertaking a large ongoing body of work.  Visual Arts spaces will be available to work in during students' study hours and after school, with frequent feedback available during these times.
