Visual Art prepares young people for a future in the workforce by requiring them to seek creative solutions to complex design problems, think divergently, and use higher-order learning skills to articulate an informed and individualised aesthetic (style/expression). At a time when creativity is sought by industry, visual Art significantly contributes to the design and manufacture of images and objects needed for living. Artists, designers, and craftspeople reflect identity and document culture through persuasive and inventive ideas. Visual communication is the most dominant mode in a mediatised world, and young people need to make sense of it and be discriminating.
