Year 12 Art History
Teacher in Charge: A. Zimmerman
Art History students will develop an understanding of the formal elements of artworks and the context within which they were produced. Students develop unique perspectives on Traditional and Contemporary Art and the meanings these communicate about the past and present.
This course will develop students’ knowledge of art, enhance their research skills and give them the ability to analyse and communicate a range of responses. Students learn by debating, blogging, curating, art making, and formal writing.
