An intensive study morning for Year 12 Visual Arts students, the course focuses on conceptual framework and art theory concepts on art and politics.
Applying curriculum frameworks to works in current exhibition, Vernon Ah Kee | The Island, students will practice conceptual framework questions based on past HSC papers. Students develop skills and confidence to articulate their responses as audience members, working with peers to test and map inter-relationships and agencies of the conceptual framework.
The morning concludes with an art history crash course on art and politics, bringing together key works and artists who confront racism, tell hidden histories and challenge what’s acceptable in Australia today.
This program is designed as a dynamic learning experience for keen visual arts students, using a mixture of group discussion, direct experience with artworks as well as practice questions and take-home resources.
