Learning Outcomes

Visual Arts, levels 3–4

Understanding the Arts in Context

During our visit we will see the artwork of Tim Chapman. We will learn about his art, the ideas he is interested in and the materials he uses to create his art.

Developing Ideas

During our pre-visit exercises we will learn about the different ways art can be made through casting and by thinking about positive and negative space. During the workshop we will use this knowledge to help understand the art we see and the ideas that are shared by artist Tim Chapman.

Developing Practical Knowledge

During our visit we will use a variety of art materials such as plaster and alginate to create our own plaster-cast artworks.

Communicating and Interpreting

During our visit we will share our ideas and thoughts about the art we see and make. We will listen to how others have created their art.

Technology

Nature of Technology – Characteristics of Technology

During our pre-visit exercise ‘Copy vs original’ we will explore how the development of technology has influenced people’s daily lives, including the way artists make art.
