Year 7 Curriculum

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.” - Pablo Picasso

In Year 7, students are introduced to a broad range of formal elements, techniques and media. These skills will become the building blocks for developing your child’s abilities and will help them to become a confident artist.

Students will be able to:

  • identify and demonstrate a growing understanding of formal elements and expressive mark-making techniques,
  • use a variety of techniques and media to create a personal response including painting, printmaking, collage and paper manipulation,
  • gain a growing understanding of colour theory, demonstrating an effective use of primary, secondary, tertiary and complementary colours.
