“If God made the flowers, they are worth painting and writing about. If God made the birds, they are worth painting. If God made the sky, the sky is worth painting. If God made the ocean, indeed it is worth writing poetry about. It is worth man’s while to create works upon the basis of the great works God has already created.” Francis A. Schaeffer
Students explore ways to express their ideas as they continue to experiment with different techniques, styles and materials to develop their own approach to a theme or subject. They are encouraged to put their full effort and energy into creating works that glorify God. They continue to consider how and why artists or designers express their ideas through different processes. They identify and explain choices in what they have used to create artworks influenced by a range of places, times and cultures. Students reflect and respond to their own learning and evaluate the art making process they have used. This subject aims for students to use detail and observation to create backgrounds and foregrounds and learn how to manipulate materials to design, construct and model 3D forms as well as to reflect and respond to fellow students’ artwork.
