Welcome to 10ARP 

During year 10 Art, You will investigate line, value, form, colour, and shape through the theoretical and practical research of established practice.  The outcome of the course will be a series of experimental and resolved artworks [focus studies] that will be used for display.  

Artworks will be photographed and presented as a digital folio [board 1 & 2]* for assessment and as foundation skills required for senior visual arts pathways.


This is ongoing and used during a unit to provide you with informal feedback on your progress.  Summative Assessment will occur at different times through focus studies and is used to measure your overall performance to determine your level of achievement.  Evidence is collected continuously and recorded in your padlet folio, and may contain work done in other subjects such as innovation stream.

General concepts that are used to make an assessment grade:

Specific learning objectives and achievement descriptors are provided with each Focus study via google classroom

Year 10 exemplar work

Time in art goes quickly, if you fall behind you are expected to catch-up during your own time.  The classroom will be available to you during school and you are able to take work home.

Lastly and importantly...

*This is not a race to see who finishes first, focus not just on quantity but quality as well. Art is about expression not perfection

•Never be afraid or shy to ask Ms O’Grady for ANYTHING, whether you have no, little or a lot of experience - skill and understanding can always be developed.
