This unit of study will facilitate the creative development of students' individual art practice through engagement with mediums and processes across a range of visual art disciplines such as painting, sculpture, photography and video. Overall, the unit aims to be a site of original content development where students have the opportunity of experimenting with different media across disciplines while integrating concepts and ideas in response to knowledge gained in previous visual art units. In addition, students will complete and present interdisciplinary artworks and related writings incorporating their own concepts and choice of media.
