Subject Overview:

This subject engages students in extended practical experiences in visual arts, drama and music. Students will make, display and perform their own artworks and reflect upon their own arts processes using a range of appropriate technologies. Studies will focus on the arts in various cultural contexts and explore differing purposes and roles of artworks. In response to VELS students will develop focus themes, units of work and resources in the two strands of visual and performing arts (including music and drama). Students will plan appropriate assessment strategies for arts experiences in the two sub-strands of arts practice and arts responding.
