ART DESIGN 31F – Full Year

ARD31F
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Soltero

In Art Design, students learn to develop visual ideas through the creative design process by studying and applying the techniques of established designers who give popular brands their identity e.g. Quicksilver, Adidas, Adobe, etc. 

Student work examples are in the links below as well as on our blogsite which lists all internal assessment tasks: phsard.blogspot.com


In this course - 

• Students select their own theme with teacher guidance within one of three categories: Product, Event or Awareness. 

• Students do not need to know how to draw but we do use sketch books.

• Students learn to use digital media by first working out ideas in their sketch books and then finding the best way to digitally develop these ideas (with teacher guidance and support) working with Photoshop, InDesign or Illustrator.

Future Possibilities 

Successful completion of ARD31F provides students with some of the content necessary to apply to Tertiary Art and/or Design courses. These courses often require the submission of a folio showcasing a range of work, therefore it is recommended that students considering studying Art and/or Design at University enrol in two of the following Level 3 courses: Art Design, Art Photography, Art Painting, Art Printmaking, Art Sculpture. 

See Mr Soltero for more information.

Achieving 14 Level 3 credits in this course counts as an approved subject for University Entrance.


Recommended Prior Learning

Maturity, enthusiasm and ability to work independently are required along with successful completion of Level 2 Art Design (Full or Semester). Students who have not successfully completed a Level 2 Art Design course may not be able to undertake a full course and should consult with Mr Soltero.
