Unit Description

Students undertaking this unit have completed a minor or major study in the Visual Arts. The material in this unit is designed to assist the students to apply this content knowledge to improving the art knowledge and skills of Yr. 7-10 students.

The unit will also introduce various perspectives of teaching Art focussing on a Christian perspective of Art.
