Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Connon

Recommended Prior Learning

Maturity, enthusiasm and the ability to work independently. A Level 2 Art Photography course is strongly recommended. 

Students who have not successfully completed a Level 2 Art Photography course 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 & image making with Adobe Photoshop

Refer to the links below to see examples of student work.

Future Possibilities

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 3 courses: Art Design, Art Photography, Art Painting, Art Printmaking or Art Sculpture. These can be taken either full year or as a semester course.

See Ms Connon for more information about this course.

See Mr Soltero for more information about tertiary pathways for Art.
