Grade: XI

I. Introduction

Applied Arts is basically a subject for communication that assumes various from and applied artists know+how to communicate through media which are subject to technical, economic and social controls. A graphic designer, therefore, has to develop a temperament that would enable him to subordinate his individuality to a collective effort. The new technologies of photography, films, television, printing, and the use of a computer as a visual+problem solver have all opened up endless avenues. Because of this, this course is designed for Grade XI students as an elective subject. This course is designed as a link between the secondary level of painting and the bachelor’s level of painting at the universities. It has two parts theoretical (25%) and Practical (75%). Students are required to get through both parts separately. The purpose of the course is to produce human resources with basic skills in the field of Applied Arts. Students undertake core Studio practice units and core theoretical units throughout the course.
