Visual Design

The Year 8 Visual Design elective course provides opportunities for broader, deeper and more extensive learning in Visual Design beyond the limits of the Visual Arts mandatory course.

Students in Stage 4 engage with forms and investigations that extend the student’s understanding of art practice, the conceptual framework and the frames in making and interpreting visual design artworks.

Visual design looks at the art forms that are used in the commercial world of design. Areas such as graphic design, computer generated design and product design are studied with selected designers in these fields used for research tasks.

The units covered in Visual Design elective include:

  • Sneaker Design
  • Steam Punk
  • Functional Ceramics
  • Personal Interest Project

Students will explore forms such as drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, mixed media, installation and digital photography.
