Visual Art

My Place

The students developed an artwork on the theme of ‘My Place’. The students created their unique artwork about a place that was special to them, using a medium of their choice. This unit helped further their conceptual planning and time management skills.


The students explored acrylic paint. They experimented with a variety of painting methods and looked at different ways to compose an image. They cropped their own photographic image to make an interesting composition that was then painted. Paint texture and colour mixing were important to the art works success.

Relief Printing

The students explored the process of Relief Printing. Students looked at the work of Margaret Preston and Narelle Oliver. They created their own unique landscape design that was then carved into ‘Soft Cut Lino’. Once carved, the image was printed on various surfaces and coloured by hand to produce an edition of prints.
