This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

The Visual Arts written examination is worth 50% of your overall mark. Do you want to improve your knowledge and understanding of how to write for this examination in a lively and engaging group atmosphere?

This course is tutored by an experienced HSC Visual Art teacher who specialises in maximising your results in the written component of this course. Nicole has taught many students ranked in the top 10 Visual Arts merit list in addition to a high percentage of students achieving a band 6. She will give you guided study plans and notes as well as help you with assessment and exam preparation.

The first in a series, this course will:
• Weeks 1 – 4 – focus on section 1 of the Visual Arts examination. Learn to unpack unseen artworks and explore the importance of other source material provided. Look at sample questions and top responses, ultimately enabling participants to structure and improve their writing to greater effect.
• Week 5 – combine an enjoyable guided gallery experience with your HSC preparation. This gallery visit will enable participants to unpack unseen images similar to those you might find in the HSC examination using a structured technique that can be applied later in exam conditions.
• Week 6 – 7 – introduction to essay writing – Nicole will introduce ‘tried and tested’ case studies ' that will complement those studied at school and teach a structured approach to writing Visual Arts essays.

This course runs for 7 weeks to fit best around the school term schedule. Participants will be encouraged to undertake practise questions throughout the course and Nicole will provide feedback on participant responses submitted. Nicole’s passion for art critical and historical studies is infectious and participants will come away with a greater appreciation for the Visual Arts.
