The Visual Arts Course at St Scholastica’s College is broad in outlook and designed to develop and extend students’ creativity and imagination. 

Whether engaged in drawing, painting, ceramics or any number of other visual art forms on offer, students are enabled to communicate ideas visually, to understand how imagery impacts the world and, practically, to develop their own body of unique work.  Visual Arts at Schols reflects the College’s belief that this course can play an important role in the social, cultural and spiritual lives of students.

In Artmaking, students explore and make 2D, 3D and/or 4D artworks in forms which may include drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, digital imaging, time-based forms or sculpture.

In Critical and Historical Studies, students will learn how art is shaped by different beliefs, values and meanings by exploring artists and artworks from different times and places and they will come to an understanding about how their own life and experiences can influence their artmaking.

Visual Arts at Schols also offers a course in Photography and Digital Media.  The course is comprehensive and designed to give students the skills to create photographic and digital work within a context of historical interpretation and appreciation.
