Art 11 (Units 1 and 2)

Unit 1

This unit focuses on realising ideas through the exploration of techniques, selected art forms and/or media. Students are introduced to a range of materials, skills and concepts through a process of investigation and discussion. Specific tasks are set to direct and facilitate the process of investigation. Exploration and research is undertaken to support a range of visual solutions. Students will also explore the social dimensions of art with reference to the importance of the social setting of artworks, the social functions that art can serve and the ways in which social issues are interpreted in past and present-day art.
