Art Painting Year 9

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Manu

This course builds on skills learnt at Years 7 and 8. Visual Art is an option subject, offered for two terms at Year 9 and a full year at Year 10. Students will do practical activities which develop their knowledge of visual elements and principles while exploring a range of three dimensional and two dimensional media. Students will generate and develop visual ideas in response to established contemporary artist’s artworks. 

The year 9 course is a hands on practical course that starts with an introduction of drawing skills and colour. The focus for year 9 is painting and ends with a grid painting inspired by an established painting artist. 

Visual Art improves observation, fine motor skills, creative and critical thinking, encourages imagination, as well as problem solving.
