Connotation, imagery and symbol in the creative arts

Students identify and interpret these hidden meanings across the creative arts, particularly through connecting music and visual arts in lessons 1 and 2.

In Lesson 1 students explore the symbolic role of images in communicating understandings about Australian and global environments and cultures. In Lesson 2 they investigate selected visual artworks and musical compositions to examine the imagery and hidden meanings within.
