Media provides students with the opportunity to examine the media in both historical and contemporary contexts while developing skills in media design and production in a range of media forms. Students examine how and why the media constructs and reflects reality, and how audiences engage with, consume, read, create and produce media products.
VCE Studio Arts introduces students to the studio process as a means of planning, exploring and developing their ideas. Students also develop an understanding of the way artists work and use this knowledge to support their own art making. From this process students will develop their final artworks.
VCE Drama focuses on the creation and performance of characters and stories that communicate ideas, meaning and messages. Students use creative processes, a range of stimulus material and play-making techniques to develop and present devised work.
Students examine the way visual language can be used to convey ideas, information and messages in the fields of communication, environmental and industrial design. Designers create and communicate through visual designs to shape the everyday quality of life for individuals, communities and societies. Visual communication design relies on drawing as the primary component of visual language to support the conception and visualisation of ideas.
