Content

This unit will focus on the development of students' abilities to evaluate and create visual messages, by examining, exploring, and investigating concepts of visual thinking and communication through the creation of two and three dimensional art forms. These arts practice experiences are enhanced through engagement with and articulation of ideas framed, through dialogue with relevant art theories. Here, students engage in the development of an “intelligent eye” and in doing so to consider the importance of visual literacy and visual intelligence. In this context, if images are viewed as a “language", visual literacy can be defined as the ability to deconstruct images and to understand and produce visual messages.

Throughout the unit students will identify relevant theoretical frameworks to inform and support their own arts practice. They will focus on the articulation of ideas and sources of inspiration as starting points for developing artworks using various methods of recording, and interpreting to translate these into visual form.

Assessment

Assignment 1: Visual Journal (50%).
