The visual language is an unspoken form of communication that transcends speech. Our minds process information into packets and categorizes them into groups. For example: thinking of the word "spotted cow" starts the subconscious mind into bringing up everything it associates with spotted cow: milk, cheese, bells, utters, and anything else an individual's personal experience has placed in the spotted cow category.
combines the following: the use of mark-making and object-making; an understanding of the potential of technology, tools and equipment; the use of a range of processes and techniques; a vocabulary of visual formal elements; experience in working with a variety of media and materials. Command of visual language will be demonstrated in two key ways in learners' work: by the ability to employ visual language in increasingly appropriate, expressive and creative ways to meet the intentions and contexts of their work;Ã‚Â· by the ability to articulate their thoughts, decisions and intentions about their work and working, using a range of communication skills and appropriate technical vocabulary.
