In this second level unit students are encouraged to develop their intellectual curiosity in a series of tasks that address the concept of abstraction in painting. Appropriate to this level of engagement students are asked to investigate a range of ideas in relation to abstraction with reference to national and international artists as diverse as Gordon Bennett, Kasmir Malevich, Chuck Close and Imants Tillers. In negotiated projects, written responses, mentor artists, process painting and other materials students will be supported to develop critical thinking and technical skills that link to the practical realisation of their creative ideas.
