Visual Art enables students to think in new and creative ways. In creating art, students explore a range of art mediums (both two and three dimensional); investigate processes, techniques and technologies to develop diverse folios of work. They also learn to write about art in a variety of contexts and develop skills in critical analysis and interpretation.
