Art and Design

Year 7

Students in Year 7 will have the opportunity to interact with a variety of materials, skills and processes, while learning about artists, designers and architects. The course content is divided to fall within the three school terms:

Term 1 is focused on the formal elements that are essential in understanding the art of others and also in creating their own creative responses. Students will also learn about traditional European artist who shaped the art world.

Term 2 has a design focus, where students will be interacting with contemporary designers who are influences by Mexico's Da de los Meurtos (Day of the Dead). Students will select and create their own design piece in response.

In Term 3, students will be looking at Middle Eastern Architecture and how it compares to their immediate surroundings in Hampton. Students will interact with 3D materials to create their own response that will be displayed within Hampton Gardens as an architectural feature.
