St Peter Claver College has a new Claver Creative Visual Arts Block. It consists of three Art studios as well as specialist, storage and outdoor areas. The new facility has long windows on one external wall revealing an exciting gallery where student work is exhibited. Visual Art is a dynamic component of Claver Creative where links are made across the curriculum but particularly across the Arts.
In Years 7 & 8, all students get to sample Visual Art for a term. Then in Year 9, students select semester courses which include:
Functional Art which has an emphasis on printmaking, pottery, fibre art and painting
Drawing with Expression which develops skills in cartooning and digital photography and image manipulation.
The Year 10 options are:
Images in Contemporary Art which experiments with two dimensional media such as painting and charcoal.
Images in the Round which explore a range of techniques and materials such as assemblage, modelling in clay and carving.
In Years 11 & 12, students select from the QSA Authority subject Visual Art or the Authority-Registered subject Visual Art Studies.
Visual Art students contribute to numerous Art exhibitions at College events and participate in local and state wide competitions.
