Past Exams and Assessment Reports
Art Theory and Criticism, Level 3, enables learners with an interest in art, but who do not necessarily wish to be artists, to immerse themselves in learning about significant developments and movements in art history. These learners are motivated to inquire about the social, cultural and chronological history of the visual arts.

Art Theory and Criticism belongs to a suite of Level 3 courses in the visual arts. It is the most theoretical of the three courses that have visual art as the underpinning knowledge. Art Theory and Criticism encourages learners to be confident, think critically and be innovative. It deepens and broadens the knowledge and appreciation of those learners destined to become designers, architects, artists, arts administrators, exhibition curators, art critics or art gallery directors, as well as providing tertiary pathways as theory majors at bachelor level and through research by higher degree (RHD) courses.

In this course visual art is used as a generic term that covers art forms such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video, filmmaking, performance art and conceptual art as well as the disciplines of design and architecture. The term artist includes artists, architects and designers.
