Year 7 Class Activities 2

Bookmark and Share

Year 7 students will be introduced to art involving human experience, feelings and thought. Art is something we experience. God is the author of creation. Therefore, understanding creativity originates from a designer. This allows us to understand that we are merely by-products of God’s design and that we use Gods designs to re-design.

By looking at art from the past we can gain knowledge and understanding of society’s beliefs, values attitudes and way of life. Art is a means of communication – a visual language, a system of conveying ideas and emotions which goes beyond the use of words.

Students will use artist models to convey meaning in their artworks. Exploring shading, tone, colour and compositions. Allowing the students to express themselves in various issues that relate to “Objects”.
