This Unit helps students to develop their personal thoughts and ideas in visual form. In the Unit, students will develop critical understanding of artists’ working practices and the social and cultural influences impacting their work. They will select stimuli and produce investigative drawings and studies. They will develop and refine their expressive ideas and art work, experimenting with and using a range of materials, techniques and/or technology in 2D and/or 3D formats in response to the stimuli.

Critical evaluation and historical studies in the visual arts and design will be of importance at this level. These will be dealt with, to a large extent, within the themes chosen for practical activities. Opportunities will exist for students to select and investigate areas of the visual arts and design which are of personal interest. Students will be able to communicate well supported personal judgements using appropriate vocabulary.
