WHAT IS VISUAL ARTS?
Visual Arts is not about drawing. It Is about images, paints, people, civilizations, charcoal, places, paper, water, characters, inks, and it’s about your own journal. We have fun in the art classroom. Learners play with colours, they learn about sculpture, they glue and stick, they look at art through the ages, they study images and learn about artists and their characters. Visual Arts has two parts. Learners study art through the ages from Pre-historic art to the modern day and they do practical work. Each term learners will keep their own journal and they create a piece of art as part of a practical project. In a fun atmosphere, learners learn to create their own masterpieces.
WHAT IS DESIGN?
Look around you. Almost everything you use in your daily life has been designed. Learn to be a designer of whatever takes your fancy - fashion, bags, CD covers, skateboards, jeweler, furniture – the choices are endless. The study of Design consists of two parts: The history of Design and the practical side. Each term learners will keep your very own journal and they will design and create their very own design masterpiece. Learners will study the history of Design through the ages and be guided step by step through the practical design process.
Learners will work in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. For those of you who want to be Designers in the future this is the place to start.
Both Visual arts and Design are offered as a matric subject. We follow the Caps Curriculum as prescribed by the education department of the Western Cape.
