In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts.
Studying the creative arts, students learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform. Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.
Students must study 100 hours of both music and visual arts during Years 7 to 10. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects including drama, dance, photography and visual design. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.
Visual Arts education at Homebush Boys High School highly values how students engage in the creative and intellectual process to produce artworks that demonstrate an approach that is imaginative, inventive and challenging.
Visual Arts places a high regard on how students develop an informed point of view and encourage tolerance, diversity and empathy between students, teachers and others in the expression of different points of view which leads to respecting cultural diversity within our societies and also in other regions and cultures.
