Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Ferguson

 

Learners will explore the Visual Arts by producing a body of artworks presented in a portfolio of working drawings and finished artworks in the context of photography & design. All work will be produced for assessment and an end of year exhibition.

Learners need to choose between Photo Design or Let’s Make Art and cannot take both courses.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Voluntary Course Contribution
Course Fee $20.00 for in-class materials and resources.
Possible Field Trips and or Workshop opportunities to deepen and reinforce learning at an approximate cost of between $15 to $35. Associated field trip fees are used to cover travel expenses and entry fees. * An actual amount to be confirmed during the course depending on available activities, exhibitions and events.

Optional Items - Recommended for home purchase and use
Students would benefit from having their own DSLR camera, camera bag and SD card for external folio work.
* There are limited school cameras available for learner use.

A laptop that is capable of running current Adobe Creative Cloud software would be beneficial.
Adobe Creative Cloud software is available to purchase from the school for $10.00 for students enrolled in this course.

Course-related Art Kits are able to be purchased from National Art Supplies at a cost of $24.32 using the following link. (National Art Supplies Link) Items may need to be replenished throughout the year depending on learner use including print materials.

While the same items can be purchased separately from other art suppliers, we believe the quality of the items and the fact that the pack is individually labelled, delivered to school and ready for the start of the school year provides excellent value for money and convenience. Course-specific items are included below

A3 Eco Sketch Pad Portrait Pad
A3 Heavy Duty Wallet
Pencil
Black Gel Pen
Eraser
Round Nylon Brush #8
Permanent Marker F/M
Glue stick
Mesh Pencil Case

To keep costs low, we recommend only buying the items of stationery you do not have. Your child is welcome to bring items from home, perhaps purchased in previous years and repurposed to save money. This could include erasers, headphones, scientific calculators and padlocks for the lockers if they already have one.
