Visual Arts builds an understanding of the role of art in all forms of media, both in the contemporary and historical world, and enables students to represent their ideas and interests in artworks.
Visual Arts enables students to become informed, understand and write about their contemporary world.
The Visual Arts Years 7–10 Syllabus contains both Mandatory and Elective courses. The Mandatory course is taught as a coherent study of 100 hours, not spread over several years. This is a requirement for eligibility for the award of the Record of School Achievement (RoSA). The Elective course can be studied for 100 or 200 hours in Stage 5 and upon successful completion will be recorded, with a grade, on the Record of School Achievement (RoSA).
