What is it and why should I do it?

VCE Art making and Exhibiting allows students to develop an individual approach to art making across a wide selection of materials. Students consider how artists create work, how ideas are used to create artworks, how artworks are presented to an audience, how artworks are preserved and students make their own work.

VCE Art Making and Exhibiting allows for an experimental approach to analogue and digital techniques using a wide variety of materials such as painting, printmaking, sculpture, drawing, ceramics and more.

Students will also research and write on the art practice of their chosen artists and look at artworks from different cultures and times.  In Unit 4 they will visit galleries and develop an understanding of how the art industry functions.

How much homework/study will I have?

All Unit 3 and 4 subjects require 3-5 hours of study per week.

Students will be required to complete research for homework prior to sitting the SACs. 

The completion of studio production and annotating your visual diary as well as producing final artworks will also require additional time outside of regular classes.
