Grade 6

Students have one one-hour lesson per week.  The intention is to offer both breadth and depth of study.  The aim is to provide students with an experience that allows them to:

  • develop their basic practical skills
  • generate an awareness of visual strategies
  • ensure they are able to analyse their own and others’ work
  • know strategies for developing and refining their own work
  • gain confidence in their own ideas
