Digital Art

Year 10
Subject Information

Students may choose one or two semester courses from the Arts learning area.

Subject Description

Digital Art involves the creation of artworks (still or video based) using digital technology for presentation to a specific audience. Students will combine traditional and digital mediums to produce digital works inspired by other artists and practitioners. In this subject students will:

  • continue development of skills relating to the various components of planning and creating digital art pieces for a target audience.

  • advance knowledge and skills in the use of Illustrator CC, Photoshop CC and Premiere Pro CC as well as the Wacom digital tablets.

  • in-depth analysis of their ideas, research appropriate topics and develop their conceptual drawings before making their final products.

Assessment will be through visual studies, a folio and product presented in a multimodal format. 

Students will be required to work both collaboratively and independently on large scale products – students with strong time management skills and the ability to manage their own self directed learning will have an advantage in this course. 

​Students who have completed either Media Arts courses in Year 9 will also have an advantage.
