Art Detective 2E provides a carefully structured but flexible approach to introducing students to the world of art, written to specifically cater to the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). There is a full and comprehensive coverage of the Arts domain with the two dimensions - 'Creating and making' and 'Exploring and responding' - being addressed by practical, classroom-based questions and activities. It encourages students to become art critics - to go beyond their initial response to try to understand the artists' intentions and some of the materials and techniques they have used to achieve them. Through a wide range of activities, students also have the opportunity to try out in their own art, some of the ideas learnt from their exploration of finished artwork.
