(Students are to continue)
Janes sculptures have a hidden language... Key Artists Artwork Audience Conceptual Framework Jane Gillings 29 provenance (a gilt frame)
materials: wood, metal, discarded plastic
size: 200cm x 300cm x 25cm Jane’s sculptures are the kind of artworks that can catch your eye from far away, but can be even more delightful and
surprising when viewed from up close. So lets take a closer look!
Can you recognise any of the objects that Jane has used to decorate the outside of the frame?
Where might you normally expect to find these objects?
What do they remind you of?
Why do you think the artist has used them in creating her sculpture? Artist at work - Jane sorting her recycled materials for provenance (a gilt frame),
2011. Year 10 Visual Arts Task: Research the work and career of one
explore in class powerpoint develop a profile for
each artist including their practice
(choices and intentions). You might like to include
information such as: where they are from,
their educational background, usint the previous example and the conceptual framework template provided. World • How is Sculpture by the Sea promoted
to the public?
• Consider the different ways people
might hear about Sculpture by the Sea?
Discuss which way would be the most
successful and why?
• What type of audience does the
exhibition aim to attract? How might
this audience differ from those who visit
galleries and/or museums?
• Sculpture by the Sea has a number of
prizes and subsidies that are awarded
to exhibiting artists each year.
Do you think these awards express the
public's view, or do they perhaps
represent the opinion of a minority?
• Do you think the Sculpture by the Sea
awards can influence public opinion? Part of the Site Manager's job is to
decide where each of the works will
be installed. What do you think the Site
Manager would need to consider when
allocating site locations for the works at
Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi?
• Consider the practical, environmental
and public safety issues involved with
installing large-scale artworks along the
coastal walk.
• Are the sculptures for sale? Discuss
who might buy them and why.
• Do you think the prospect of making
a sale might influence what an artist
creates? The Frames Activity
Choose a frame to write a paragraph about your own artwork. Try to answer as many questions as you can within your paragraph. Then go to the 'Your Artwork' page and upload a photo/ video of your artwork and your paragraph and display your art to the world.
Example Response: Patrcia Piccinini from the Subjective Frame

Patricia Piccinini’s work ‘The Young Family’ gives you an immediate eerily disturbing feeling upon witnessing such a realistic portrayal of a hybrid creature, which are half man and half animal of some sort. The ugliness immediately makes you shudder without controllable thought and an experience of overwhelming guilt soon follows. One is not used to seeing a creature with such human life texture and colour, at first glance, you would think the creature was a life. However once inspecting the work you start to see the similarities between a human and the creature. The Subjective Frame:

Discusses the work from your point of view. How does the work make you feel and what meaning do you take from the work. The Structual Frame:

Discusses the work based on it's physical elements and the procress of making the work. This frame looks at the materials used, how the artist made the work, the signs and symbols within the work. It's always good to remember the structual frame is based more on the facts then opinion. The Cultural Frame:

Discusses the culture and social meanings within the work.What type of audience and from what background its meant to view the work. What time and place was the work created, what was the influences of the creation of the work. The Post-modern Frame:

Discusses how this work challenges the mainstream notion of art. How does it turn away or progress the art world and what we believe art to be. Does it challenges your ideas of art by using practices that are unusal for the art world e.g. humour, appropriation. Frames: There are four frames. Each frame sets up different relationship between the agency of the conceptual framework meaning the artist, artworks, the audience and the world. The four frames are; You are reminded of a mother looking after her children just like this creature is doing in the artwork and begin to experience not only a sense of guilt but empathy. It begins to make oneself question the boundaries of science and biotechnologies and whether growing human organs in another species such as pigs is ethical. Is the future of science in these hybrid creatures? That is certainly what Piccinini is suggesting, however leaving the question whether this is right or wrong to our own individual verdict. •The artworld is part of the world at large.
•The world at large is a context in which events of significance occur.
•The world at large is constantly evolving and changing as a result of technological and scientific changes that often lead to societal change.
•Events of significance need to be researched as they impact on the artworld.
•The collective experience of a particular age or place can be experienced as world.
•The “subjective” world can be understood and experienced personally and psychologically by individual artists and discreet audiences.
•The world as a place for the existence of cultural beliefs, values, religions, rituals, ideas and concepts. The relationship of the cultural world and its artists and their artworks and audiences can be evaluated and can be thought of as the “cultural” world.
•The “material” world is the world of mass produced commodies, and ideas of the consumer culture.
•The virtual world is the world of digital imaging and its relationships to the material world and to reality. Previous Work This Case Study will develop your skills in
Reading and understanding art history explanations
Understanding "visual codes" by using the structural frame to explore ways artists create meaning
Develop your own art critical writing skills in constructing an analysis interpretation and evaluation of art Example of ways to explore artists Here are some readings based on Brett Whiteley to develop your understanding of the effect of VAPD and different artist practice Paragraph 1- DESCRIBE the work. Artists name, date, title, What its made of, size, what we see left to right, foreground, background all with descriptive language.

Paragraph 2- ANALYSE the way in which Blu has constructed and presented the work including how techniques and materials convey meanings.

Paragraph 3- INTERPRETATION How does iconography convey meaning? Explain intent and what is the underlying meaning of the work? Previous Work Stage 4 Lesson 1 STEP 2: Students are to access sample resource package link below as a further source of ways questions are asked and answered in preparation for their preliminary exams. http://arc.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/standards-packs/SP01_15400/ Step 1: Use the attached PowerPoint to support your understanding of ways of writing a Visual Art Response The Body of The Essay Effective Essay writing in Visual Art Step 3: With this information students are then to create their own Art Historical Question and post it on Edmodo by clicking on this link http://edmodo.com/join/878652f43676ed8273bf2143e629e48d

The following principles are a general outline of the steps a student might use when writing essays and assignments.
An essay consists of an Introduction(1 Paragraph) and Body ( 3 – 5 Paragraphs) and a conclusion ( 1 Paragraph)

What Does a Good Essay Need?
An academic essay aims to persuade readers of an idea based on evidence.
An academic essay should answer a question or task.
It should have an argument.
It should try to present or discuss something: develop a 'thesis' or a set of closely related points - by reasoning and evidence.
An academic essay should include relevant examples, supporting evidence and information from academic texts or credible sources. Basic Steps in Writing an Essay
In no strict order . . .

-Analyse the question and define key terms

-Establish your argument/point of view

-Research the topic. Use books, journals and other credible academic sources for support and evidence.

-Take notes from your readings.

-Write your plan and organise your ideas

-Write your first draft to include your introduction, body and conclusion

-Set the draft aside for a day or two, then read it through and make changes
Edit and redraft your essay Starting Your Essay

Essay structure is very important all essays should have an introduction a body and a conclusion.

Always answer the question and introduce your viewpoint, argument or examination and identify your source material (Artist or selected case studies) in your introduction.

The Body of your essay will include all the source material you will present to substantiate your argument discusion or examination. Usually three to five paragraphs re confirming your argument with concrete evidence…Artists, artworks, styles, dates, critical dialogue, historical accounts.

Your conclusion will re emphasisze your viewpoint, argumment or discussion and in some cases make a final conclusion based on your findings through the entire body of your essay. The Introduction

1 Paragraph about fifteen lines

This can be seen as the most important part of the essay. The introduction will set out the standard and give the reader an indication of what stance you are taking and what topics you are going to cover.

The introduction should ALWAYS answer the Question and outline the detail of your intentions…

Sample Example Essay Question…..2010 Catholic Schools Trial
Practice Question 4

Examine the relationship between meanings and aesthetics in the practices of artists and/or architects and/or designers. In this particualr question which comes under the category of Practice

Examine the relationship between meanings and aesthetics in the practices of artists and/or architects and/or designers.

EXAMINE – Inquire into…. You make your own enquiries made on your own assessments

Relationships between meanings and aesthetics in the practices of artists designers ect….

Basically the meanings are the concepts which are the ideas behind the artwork.. What does the work mean what is the artist trying to convey or say to his/her audiences.

And the aesthetics is the visual skills that are displayed, how skillfully has the artist made or created the work, how pleasing is the work visually.

Imagine that these artists are your chosen Case Studies..

Egon Schiele, Julie Rrap, Vincent Van Gogh… The body of the essay is the detailed information that you will use to support
your argument. These will be your views and opinions substantiated by facts,
dates, quotes, critical and historical contexts. This will be the middle of your essay usually
about three to four paragraphs… USE The MESL System

This may include an order of artists or artworks that support your views. Some
students prefer to have an order and present one artist with supporting evidenced
material for each paragraph.

For example: following on from the example question…

The first paragraph of the Body of the Essay will reiterate your intentions and all materials will be substantiated by facts…

Please make your opinions, however support them with concrete examples…

Example of Paragraph 1 to follow. In the Main Body of your essay:
Each paragraph uses the MESL technique:

M= Make a point
E= Explain the point
S= Support the point
L= link back to the question OR to your next point 1. What part of this lesson did you find most challenging?
2. Explain one areas in Art Critical/Historical you need more information on or would like to learn more about?
3, List three areas of art theory/practical that you were previsouly unaware of. Well done guys!
