ATAR Notes: Year 12 Visual Arts Complete Course Notes

Author: Madeleine Wainwright, Publisher: ATAR Notes

The publisher (ATAR Notes) is currently in the process of updating the front cover of this book. If you receive a book which has the dates 2019-2020 on the front, please be assured that this is the most up-to-date version and is 100% relevant for the 2021 syllabus.

The Complete Course Notes are designed to be the perfect companion to any HSC student. All notes are fully updated and written to the current syllabus by high-achieving HSC student graduates.

This series provides a unique perspective for any would‑be HSC high‑achiever: you can learn from someone who’s done it.

These notes are written with a strong focus on Art Criticism and Art History, as it is often the area which students struggle the most. This book is broken down according to the syllabus where the author discusses and provides examples for how to analyse Practice, the Conceptual Framework, and the Frames.

You will also find high-scoring sample essays and responses to use as templates for your own work, and a tonne of advice from a past-HSC student who achieved a 95 in Visual Arts. These notes will guide you through the course from start to finish, from coming up with a concept to sitting your final exam. Plus, there is even a whole section full of vocabulary and key terminology to use in art criticism.
