Visual Arts Stage 6 syllabus amendments

In 2016 the Visual Arts Stage 6 syllabus will be amended in response to feedback from targeted teacher consultations in 2015 and changes in artworld practices over time.

The proposed amendments will:

  • be minor in scope
  • require no change to or impact on the design or conduct of the HSC examination in Visual Arts.

Teachers and key stakeholders will be consulted on the draft syllabus amendments and have the opportunity to provide feedback to BOSTES in Term 2 2016.
