Subject Overview:

This subject focuses on the teaching of the relevant Visual Arts components of the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). Students will study the role of the art critic and art historian as they plan learning experiences involving pupils responding to artworks. The focus will be upon the development of spoken and written skills in art practice, curriculum content and how pupil achievement in the field of cultural theory of the visual arts can be recognised, assessed and reported. The course will include the study of classroom strategies, the management of art appreciation experiences and resource planning. The program will focus on the development of secondary programs in art appreciation drawing upon learning and curriculum theories relevant to aesthetic experience and current issues relating to pedagogy, cultural practice and curriculum development.
