Visual Arts Year 11-12

The Year 11-12 course at Normanhurst Boys, builds on the knowledge and capabilities gained during Year 7-10 mandatory and elective Arts subjects such as Visual Arts, Photographic and Digital Media and Visual Design.

Students will be guided in the development of artworks which culminate in a ‘body of work’ in the HSC course. This ‘body of work’ should reflect the knowledge and understanding students have of art processes, the skills they can demonstrate, and the ability they have in developing conceptually strong artwork.

Through art criticism and art history, students investigate artworks, art critics, art historians and artists from Australia, as well as other cultures, traditions and times. This study becomes more exciting and involving when it relates to the development of their own artwork in Year 12.
