Unit Title

My Everyday Life - how might
we depict our everyday life in
relief printing using influences
of the Pop Art style and
Hokusais Great Wave?
Gradient Architect in Residence
Program. How might an architect
in residence program help us to
critically consider the
architectural spaces that we
inhabit, thereby allowing us
to bring colour and vitality into
these institutions?
Soapstone How might we depict
the human form in a reduced and
simplified manner in soapstone
sculpture?

Memory and Erasure How
might we capture impressions
of events and moments in time
in the charcoal animations that
we make about a personal
memory?
Description A cultural and postmodern
investigation of relief printing
to make artworks about the
students own everyday life
and social identity. Using the
Pop Art style, students will
make a three colour relief
print to communicate aspects
of their own social
environment, including
aspects of Australian urban or
beach culture. In art historical
and critical studies, students
investigate a range of artists
who communicate ideas about
the world - consumer and
popular culture, Australian
urban and beach culture.
Gradient is a project that has
come from the award of a VADEA
grant in 2013. The project
involves an established and
award winning architect working
with students in Stage 5, Year 10
to produce a site-responsive
architectural installation within
the school grounds. The project
will give the students some
understanding of how a series of
processes are integrated in
architectural projects. In this
project the colour sequence that
the art students produce will only
be given full effect, washing
across the ceiling into a gradient
of colour, through the refinement
An investigation of the
representation of the body in
modernist art practice from the
point of view of the Structural
and subjective frames. Students
explore some conventions and
traditions of sculpture, in
particular the carved form.
Drawing is used to simplify and
reduce the human form to simple
forms.
In historical and critical studies
students investigate the changing
visual language of modern
sculptures.
A subjective frame exploration
of charcoal and stop-
frame/filmic conventions. In
artmaking, students create a
series of charcoal drawings
representing a memory from
their past. Students will
illustrate their memory using
charcoal and will document the
development of their drawings
frame-by-frame using a digital
camera. A digital stop-frame
animation will be made from
the sequenced drawings. In art
historical and critical studies the
focus will be on the practice of
William Kentridge. The focus on
this artist will allow students to

Artmaking







Using the Pop Art style,
students will make a three
colour relief print to
communicate aspects of their
own social environment,
including aspects of Australian
urban or beach culture.
Hokusais Great Wave is the
beginning point of this unit of
work, students being required
to appropriate this work as
part of their relief print.
In artmaking, students will
respond to the architecture of
the campus at Balgowlah Boys
which is within the brutalist style.
The large, roughly formed
concrete walls, minimum
openings and a general absence
of ornament creates a canvas to
consider the evolving approaches
to architecture. The project
'Gradient', involves a temporary
installation within the buildings of
Balgowlah Boys. It is focused on
the mid level corridor that
surrounds the atriums in both A
block and G block, and the upper
Students explore some
conventions and traditions of
sculpture, in particular the carved
form. Drawing is used to simplify
and reduce the human form to
simple forms. Students then
carve their designs into the
soapstone, as well as polish the
stone using wet and dry
sandpaper and baby oil.

A subjective frame exploration
of charcoal and stop-
frame/filmic conventions. In
artmaking, students create a
series of charcoal drawings
representing a memory from
their past. Students will
illustrate their memory using
charcoal and will document the
development of their drawings
frame-by-frame using a digital
camera. A digital stop-frame
animation will be made from
the sequenced drawings.

level corridor that bridges
between the two buildings. The
28 linear fluoro light fittings
mounted to the concrete soffits
of these spaces will be fitted with
a suspended panel, designed and
fabricated by the D&T students.
These panels will bounce light
onto the concrete ceiling, with a
colour gradient developed by the
Visual Arts students. The gradient
scheme will be developed
through colour shaded plans and
photomontages, using photoshop
software. Once the final gradient
scheme is selected, through the
consensus of all students, the
Visual Art students will
participate in the process of
mixing the colours and applying
them to the panels.
The D&T students will undertake
a process of research and
development to create a system
that can be fixed directly to the
light fitting itself (therefore not
requiring drilling into the
concrete soffit), refining the
system so it reflects colour

optimally across the concrete
ceiling, creating a continuous
gradient wash of colour
throughout the spaces from one
light to the next.
The atriums of A block and G
block will have distinctly different
atmospheres, whilst the linking
corridor will become a long
gradient of colour, visible at
length from the main quad

Practice
Critical and
Historical Studies




In art historical and critical
studies, students investigate a
range of artists who
communicate ideas about the
world - consumer and popular
culture, Australian urban and
beach culture.
In art study, students will learn
about the architectural style of
Brutilism. Students will
investigate the architecture of Le
Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe.
Key architectural spaces that
students will investigate are the
Barbican complex in London and
the National Gallery and High
Court in Canberra.
In historical and critical studies
students investigate the changing
visual language of modern
sculptures.
In art historical and critical
studies the focus will be on the
practice of William Kentridge.
The focus on this artist will
allow students to gain an
understanding of how a case
study is approached in Stage 6,
Year 12.
