Students learn how their ideas or subject matter can be developed through different forms, styles, techniques, materials and technologies. They explore how and why artworks are created and ways to use and apply visual conventions such as line, shape, colour and texture. Students develop an understanding of how art can be effectively displayed at an exhibition. As a viewer, they respond to visual artworks and consider the artists’ intent and viewpoint, as well as their own. As an artist, they express their ideas through various creations and learn how to write an artist’s statement to welcome others to their art.
