Art

Art is offered at every year level at Sacred Heart College.  

At Year 9 Art forms part of a rotation where students spend a term developing their practical knowledge.

At Year 10 Art is an option and students are given opportunities to work in a range of media whilst learning about the conventions of Art.

As students’ progress into the Senior School their Art programmes become more individualised.  There is more emphasis on using the work of other artists and experimenting with processes and procedures.

At year 13 students are encouraged to explore their own direction and subject matter in consultation with their teachers.

As a department we believe that creativity is a vital component of a lifelong learner. It is our aim to develop independent learners by empowering our students to take responsibility for their own learning and to assist them in creating art using both new information and by building on their own prior personal and cultural knowledge. We encourage our students to think critically and solve problems in creative ways, nurturing a range of transferable life skills which include co-operation, leadership, flexibility and thoughtful risk taking.  We consider that these skills will be crucial in their future lives.
