Course Description

Contact Person: T. Beggs

This course aims to build on the existing skill base taught in Years 11 and 12. This enables the students to apply these to more individualised design contexts from a variety of design fields (including spatial, product and media design). High quality and in-depth design thinking and visual communication are key aspects to the subject at this level. A selection of standards will be offered from the list provided.
