The Visual Arts play a significant role in recording, shaping and reflecting the culture and context of any given society at a given time

Study of the Visual Arts promotes innovation and creative and critical thinking skills, vital for young people in the 21st Century. Tasmanians value and support creative and cultural industries which contribute significantly to the economy and Tasmanian cultural identity. Visual Art Level 2 has been developed for learners seeking to engage with art practice in a particular studio area. The course may also support those learners preparing for further study in Art at level 3. In Visual Art Level 2 learners develop a body of work in a single art studio – developing their technical skills and aesthetic understanding. Methods and processes specific to their studio of choice are introduced and explored. Learners also develop initial skills in the research, analysis and criticism of art. Visual Art Level 2 belongs to a suite of courses in art and specifically provides opportunities for learners to express and identify meaning in artwork, developing their communication and visual literacy skills in a single art studio.
