Unit 1: How Can I Create a Portrait? (Part A)

You’ll explore the elements and principles of design by working with portraits. You’ll do a series of portraits using a variety of mediums and techniques including, digital images, pencil drawing, positive and negative space, paper cutting, coloured pencil and surrealist techniques and imagery. This work will further your knowledge of the ‘language of art’, broaden your skills, and help you become familiar with the steps in the creative process, including planning and reflection.

Unit 2: How Can I Create a Portrait? (Part B)

You’ll explore the elements and principles of design by working with portraits. You’ll do a series of portraits using a variety of mediums and techniques including, digital images, pencil drawing, positive and negative space, paper cutting, coloured pencil and surrealist techniques and imagery. This work will further your knowledge of the ‘language of art’, broaden your skills, and help you become familiar with the steps in the creative process, including planning and reflection.

Unit 3: How Can I Work with Colour? (Part A)

Colour – what is it, how is it made, how is it used, and some of its history-is explored first. Watching a video from the National Gallery of Art in Washington you’ll learn how our understanding of this element has evolved over time and see some ways it’s been used by some of art’s greatest colourists. Then, working with colour and tempera paint, you’ll mix colours, tints and shades, and see the properties come to life. From colour you’ll move on to style and learn about one of most recognizable styles in modern art, cubism. You’ll find out where this style came from, what it means, who worked with it; and you’ll analyse a cubist painting. Finally, you’ll combine colour, painting, and the cubist style to create a monochromatic still life painting and learn how to mount and label it for presentation.

Unit 4: How Can I Work with Colour? (Part B)

At the end of Unit 4 - the midway point of the course - there’s an Assessment of Learning Task. It’s a timed test done on your computer that covers the first half of the course. You’ll need to review your notes and your coursework to prepare as it’s worth 17% of your total mark for the course.

Unit 5: How Can I Work with 3-D?

It’s all 3-D in Unit 5. Through a series of short videos you’ll be introduced to some of the processes used in sculpture and see how this art form continues to evolve and take new directions. You’ll also go and visit an art gallery and use the critical analysis process to write an analysis of a sculptural work. You’ll focus in on the process called assemblage (or construction) and examine the unique works of American sculptor Joseph Cornell and African American artist Betye Saar who both re-used and re-purposed found objects in their assemblages, but in distinctively different ways. With this foundation and inspiration you’ll make your own three-dimensional art work using a variety of traditional and contemporary media arranged within the space of a small box. Before beginning that project you’ll get an overview of the legal and ethical issues related to appropriation and the health and safety practices required when constructing, cutting, gluing, and assembling. You’ll learn how to document your work through photo documentation and reflect on it in an artist statement, sending the documentation in to be evaluated in the assessment task for this unit.

Unit 6: How Can I Create an Artist's Book? (Part A)

Combining art forms, mediums, skills, and techniques - you’ll create an original artist’s book of personal landscapes. To begin you’ll compare two styles of landscape: one from the east - Edo period landscapes by Japanese artists, and one from the west - Impressionist and Post-Impressionist landscapes from France. You’ll see the influence of one style on another, the effects of culture and materials on style, and how traditions and ideas are combined and juxtaposed to push art forward. Taking another direction, you’ll get a brief look at the place of books in art, and as art, across cultures and time, and touch on the innovative use of books in art today. Then, using pencil, pen and ink, and watercolour, you’ll create four landscapes of places that are personally significant, write a short reflection on each, and combine the visuals and written works into a handmade book, stitching it together with a Japanese stab stitching. You’ll document this creative process in your sketchbook and with photos. In the last lesson of the course you’ll get a chance wrap up your course work by putting your portfolio together, reflecting on your progress in an artist’s statement, and submitting the course work for marking. After Unit 7 is complete you have only to prepare yourself and take the Final Test successfully to finish the course.
