Visual Art and Design

The PJ Olivier Art Centre is situated in the middle of town - next to the Braak with the landmark rubber tyre mule by Andries Botha in front of our entrance - provides art education for all learners on a variety of levels.

Learners in Grades 8 and 9 do the Visual Art component of Creative arts as part of the compulsory learning areas of the Senior Phase at the art centre. We expose learners to a variety of art techniques and begin to teach them how to look at and analyse the different types of art forms that one can encounter in this technological 21st century.

The Grade 8 and 9 learners can also take Art as a choice subject. During these lessons learners do larger and more intensive projects that expose them to the different art forms that may be taken as subjects in the FET phase in Grades 10 to 12.

In Grade 10 learners may choose Art as a subject to take through to matric. In Art there are two directions provided - Design and Visual Art. Design presents learners with a subject that is focused on the production of products that are functional and that have aesthetic value. Visual Arts is about self-expression and offers learners a way to engage meaningfully with, and respond to their world.

Both subjects have a practical and theoretical component. For the final matric examination learners are required to do a practical artwork, set up an exhibition that shows an overview of their progress in Grades 11 and 12 and write a three hour theoretical exam during which their skills in visual literacy are tested.

Rhenishers have a proud history of excellence in the work they do at the P J Olivier Centre for Art.
