Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Connon

Recommended Prior Learning

Maturity, enthusiasm and the ability to work independently are needed. Level 1 Art is strongly recommended because of the skills learned in managing relatively large independent projects and more especially the creative process. 

Students who have not successfully completed Level 1 Art need to meet with Ms Connon or Mr Soltero before confirming enrolment in Photography.

The focus of this course is on the development of Artistic ideas. Students use their ideas and subject matter with a variety of contemporary photographic approaches to Art. Students research artists and demonstrate an understanding of established photographic practice with teacher guidance. 

The course includes –

  • Making Original Art using Digital Photography
  • Learning and Using Practical Art Skills
  • Researching and Applying Artist's Conventions
  • Editing and Image making with Adobe Photoshop.

Future Possibilities

Successful completion of this course gives students entry to Art Photography 31F. Entry to tertiary Art, Design or Photography courses is often through the submission of a folio representing a range of art study in the Year 13 courses, therefore students considering studying Art and/or Design at University should enrol in two of the following Level 2 courses: Art Design, Art Photography, Art Painting, Art Printmaking or Art Sculpture. These can be taken as either full year or as a semester course.

See Ms Connon for more information.
