Rationale of the study makes explicit: art as a tool for cultural and personal communication the value of creativity and analysis in artmaking that theoretical research supports practical artmaking the value of understanding art of different cultures the importance of discussing and debating art issues and ideas to develop informed viewpoints

Advice to teachers section of the study design


This section includes advice on: Developing a course Explanation of specific terms used throughout the Study Design Progression of Analytical Frameworks Theoretical Components of study Visual Language Student use of resource material Learning activities

Analytical Frameworks
The Analytical Frameworks include a series of questions that guide students and teachers in the analysis and interpretation of artworks They are common to all Areas of study Introduced in Units 1 and 2 Fully implemented in Units 3 and 4

Analytical Frameworks
There are four Analytical Frameworks
Formal applied in Units 14 Personal applied in Units 1, 3, 4 Cultural applied in Units 2, 3, 4 Contemporary applied in Units 3, 4

Structure of the study


The study is made up of four units with two areas of study in each unit

In all areas of study theoretical outcomes now precede practical outcomes.


Unit 1 AoS 1 Art and meaning AoS 2 Artmaking and personal meaning Unit 2 AoS 1 Art and culture AoS 2 Artmaking and cultural expression

Structure of the study


Unit 3 AoS 1 Interpreting art AoS 2 Investigation and interpretation through artmaking Unit 4 AoS 1 Discussing and debating art

AoS 2 Realisation and resolution

Unit 1 Area of study 1 Art and meaning


Outcome 1
Analyse and interpret a variety of artworks using the Formal Framework and the Personal Framework. Emphasis is placed on the interpretation of artworks through visual language and the personal perspectives of the artist and viewer

Unit 1 Area of study 2 Artmaking and personal meaning


Outcome 2 Present visual creative responses that demonstrate their personal interests and ideas through trialling techniques, materials and processes. Emphasis is on providing a guided exploration for students when creating artworks through the application of the Formal and Personal Frameworks Students are encouraged to explore and evaluate their own ideas through reflective annotation of their artmaking

Unit 2 Area of study 1 Art and culture


Outcome 1
Analyse, interpret, compare and contrast artworks from different cultures using the Formal Framework and the Cultural Framework. Focus is in on the ways in which art communicates the values, traditions and beliefs of societies

Unit 2 Area of Study 2 Artmaking and cultural expression


Outcome 2 Demonstrate technical and artistic development in the presentation of visual responses that include one finished artwork, through the exploration of selected media, materials and techniques.
Emphasis is on the development of areas of personal interest related to cultural identification. Students apply the Formal and Cultural Framework to reflect upon and annotate their artmaking

Unit 3 Area of study 1 Interpreting art


Outcome 1 Use the Analytical Frameworks to analyse and interpret artworks produced before 1970 and artworks produced since 1970, and compare and contrast the meanings and messages of artworks produced before 1970 with those of artworks produced since 1970.
Emphasis is on students comparing and contrasting a variety of artworks and developing an interpretation of them Students use a range of resources in their research and relevant aspects of all Analytical Frameworks

Unit 3 Area of study 2 Investigation and interpretation through artmaking

Outcome 2 Explore personal ideas and concepts through a conceptual and practical investigation including at least one finished artwork, using selected Analytical Frameworks to reflect upon and annotate their work. Students commence building a body of work that includes at least one finished artwork The focus is on exploring ideas through a practical as well as conceptual investigation

Unit 4 Area of study 1 Discussing and debating art


Outcome 1 Discuss and debate an art issue using selected artist/s works as context, and present their informed opinion with reference to artworks and with the support of selected commentaries and relevant aspects of the Analytical Frameworks. A minimum of one artist must be studied and two artworks by that artist New content focuses on discussing art issue/s Students use commentaries that present different viewpoints to develop and substantiate their own point of view

Unit 4 Area of study 2 Realisation and resolution


Outcome 2 Progressively communicated ideas, directions and/or personal concepts in a body of work that includes at least one finished artwork, having used selected Analytical Frameworks to underpin reflections on their artmaking. Students continue to develop and resolve a body of work and produce at least one other finished artwork It is expected that the body of work will show evolution and resolution of ideas and progressive development of skill Students continue to apply relevant aspects of all Analytical Frameworks to support reflective annotation

Questions

School-assessed Task
Small group discussion:
1. What questions might you ask when assessing work using this criteria? 2. What concerns might you have determining the achieved level of performance?

SAT - A sample approach: Outcome 2 Criterion 4


Assessing the process development work and minimum of 2 finished artworks
How has the student used formal qualities, elements and principles to communicate concepts and ideas? Does the selection of formal qualities, elements and principles effectively communicate concepts and ideas? How has the student used aesthetics to support the communication of concepts and ideas?

Assessing written annotation


How effectively has the student documented their insights and used visual language to communicate concepts and ideas? How effectively has the student evaluated the work? Is there evidence that the student has used all relevant aspects of the Analytical Frameworks?

SAT - A sample approach: Outcome 2 Criterion 5

Assessing written annotation


What evidence is there that the student has used the Formal, Personal, Cultural and Contemporary frameworks? To what degree are the references to the Analytical Frameworks appropriate to the students work? Is there consistent evaluation and documentation of the development of ideas and artmaking processes?
