They further extend perceptual skills and representational capabilities, increasingly developing their ideas on a conceptual basis.
They develop their use of appropriate visual language and visual devices with increasing complexity.
They draw on artworks from a range of cultures, times and locations. Exploring the influences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, and those of the Asia region.
Students explore the properties of materials, techniques, technologies,and processes to create and produce solutions to their artworks.
They increasingly build on their knowledge of selected art styles.
Students exhibit their artworks individually or collaboratively, basing the selection on a concept or theme.

Artworks exhibited are created by students in Art classes. An Artist Statement to explain influences, use of materials, techniques and processes, and their use of aesthetic qualities to create meaning.
