ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC VISUAL ARTS

ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC VISUAL ARTS

These recommended free e-resources are specifically aligned with the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) curriculum framework as suggested in the CSEC Visual Arts Syllabus. Resources are provided under each of the three components of study and associated sub-topics as recommended by CXC:

 

Two-Dimensional Expressive Forms

  • Drawing
  • Painting and Mixed-media
  • Graphic and Communication Design
  • Printmaking
  • Textile Design and Manipulation

 

Three-Dimensional Expressive Forms

  • Sculpture and Ceramics
  • Leathercraft
  • Fibre and Decorative Arts

 

Theory, Process and Practice of Visual Arts (Reflective Journal).

 

NOTE: The knowledge, understanding, skills and values gained from the CSEC Visual Arts Syllabus will assist students in building conceptual and practical skills which can be applied in art, craft, design and related careers in the world of work. It will further provide students with a basis for further study, enhance their leisure time pursuits and foster their aesthetic, physical, spiritual, personal and cultural development. Emphasis is placed on the Caribbean, since there is a pressing need for the people of the region to develop an aesthetic awareness and appreciation of their cultural heritage.
