Visual Arts incorporates all three fields of art, craft and design. Students create visual representations that communicate, challenge and express their own and others’ ideas, both as artists and audience members. They develop perceptual and conceptual understanding, critical reasoning and practical skills through exploring and expanding their understanding of their world, and other worlds.
Visual Arts engages students in a journey of discovery, experimentation and problem-solving relevant to visual perception and visual language. Students undertake this journey by utilising visual techniques, technologies, practices and processes. Visual Arts supports students’ ability to recognise and develop cultural appreciation of visual arts in the past and contemporary contexts through exploring and responding to artists and their artworks.

Visual Arts knowledge and skills ensure that, individually and collaboratively, students:
- demonstrate confidence, curiosity, imagination and enjoyment when engaged in visual arts making
- apply visual arts techniques, materials, processes and technologies to create artworks through the design and inquiry process
- apply visual language and critical creative thinking skills when creating and responding to artwork
- develop aesthetic, artistic and cultural appreciation of visual arts in past and contemporary contexts, both as artists and art critics.
