While we wait for the final document to be officially published on ACARA's website, I continue to stay in touch with any changes to the draft (July 2013) visual arts document. I have summarised below a 'snapshot' of themes or topics described to be covered in the band descriptors.
Visual Arts Curriculum (Draft) Snapshot:
~physical and conceptual properties
~Historical and cultural histories art and design
If you are a primary or middle teacher, to assist with your planning, I have listed 'topics' or 'themes' of other subject curricula which can be viewed in this Australian Curriculum overview document I created. You can find links between some subjects and compare topics or themes which need to be addressed to assist in your planning. It lists the key points from the band descriptors from the current phase 1 subjects which were implemented in 2013; English, History, Maths, Science with phase 2 draft subject Visual Arts.
Please note the documents on the Australian Curriculum are my interpretation only. Please consult ACARA for clarification.
