Welcome to Visual Arts at Tuakau College!
Visual Arts students explore, refine and communicate their own artistic ideas by responding to how art expresses identity, culture, ethnicity, ideas, feelings, moods, beliefs, political viewpoints and personal perspectives. Through engaging in the Visual Arts, students learn how to discern, participate in, and celebrate their own and others visual worlds.
The Visual Arts Learning Matrix includes:
Visual Arts Context - understanding how art is made, viewed and valued
Visual Arts Processes - exploring and demonstrating how art practices operate
Visual Arts Practice - applying Visual Arts contexts and understanding Visual Arts processes to make own work
Visual Arts Communication - understanding how to communicate and interpret in the arts
