Visual Arts

The Visual Arts empower students to engage in visual forms of communication. The subject of Visual Arts serves to facilitate an interpretation and organisation of such information. Visual Arts plays an important role in the social, cultural and spiritual lives of students. Through effective teaching and learning, students’ knowledge of the visual arts can become increasingly complex, more reflective and authoritative over time.

The conceptual framework proposes ways to understand and investigate relations between and amongst the agencies of the artist – artwork – world – audience. These functions or agencies when considered in the light of the structural, subjective, postmodern and cultural frames generate content for making and studying artworks.
