Special comments about delivery of the program

This is an entry level qualification for the arts and related industries. The focus is on digital arts including video, photography, digital imaging and drawing. Basic techniques, knowledge and skills are developed through the completion of a series of set tasks. Students develop their drawing skills and produce creative solutions as they experiment with the use of different materials and media.

For VCE students who complete this course, it is not scored but qualifies for a 3/4 sequence and an increment towards their ATAR. (10% of the lowest study score of the primary four studies).
