of the Site
Arts is an interesting area of study that affects our everyday lives. Every
single person knows art and is capable of creating art – it’s just a
matter of how well. Consequently, we decided to whip up this engaging,
content-rich and totally innovative website to serve as an educational
resource that will further inform and assist students in research relating
to this particular topic.
website is designed by students for students. Together with them, we also
aim to target teachers as well as other educators from around the world and
people in the community… basically anyone and everyone with a ‘thing’
the Site Was Created
great deal of planning, organising, and timing was essential to the
assembling of the final product – it was not simple at all. The main steps
coming up with an interesting and original layout
designing graphics to make this site appear more appealing
analysing the information gathered and removing any gibberish in order to
make sure that the information being delivered is straight to the point; and
combining everything together.
all this was done we had to keep the end-user in mind at all times, we had
to make sure that they were able to see the website clearly and that it was
compatible with the user’s computer (in terms of screen size and
resolution). We decided not to use thumbnails for the pictures because
we thought there would be too much clicking, and that the pictures lower on
the page would be loading while people were reading the top.

This website was made from scratch meaning that there was no copyright involved. All artworks placed on this website were produced by students attending our school. We have a wealth of artistic talent!
Members of the DaVinci’s & Their Responsibilities
Andrew: In conjunction with web design, he was responsible for all the scanning and photo editing – selecting the most appropriate photos for viewing.

Kathy: She assisted each and every individual in the team especially Andrew in scanning and editing the fine artworks. In the end, she proof-read the final product.
As our typist, she interpreted technical language thus reducing it to
relevant information to make it more interesting and understandable to the
Nathan: Being our web designer, he came up with a legible and interesting
page layout. He was also our testing officer – making sure that the website
is all ready to go and working at its best.
We have to say, this girl is one hypo, bossy, and weird team coordinator!
Nevertheless, if it wasn’t for her orders.…would we have finished?
Wendy: As the main researcher and photographer of the team, she had to
collect information and take pictures to be placed on the page.
team would like to take the opportunity to sincerely show appreciation of
our team advisor, Mrs Best, for giving us the opportunity to enter this
competition. Lacking her guidance and support, we would certainly not have
been able to present such an up to standard website nor would we have
realised the strength of fellowship. Many, many thanks to Mrs Best!
we would like to thank the Head Teacher of Visual Arts, Mrs Stynes, and the
various Visual Arts students’ right through from Year 7 to 12 –
particularly Year 9 Graphic Design and Year 11 Visual Design for providing
us with such highly impressive works of art. Without their contribution, our
website would be nowhere near what it currently is. A
special mention for contributions goes to Nghi, Tiffany, Tuong, Narudeth,
Shan Shan, Nina, Erica.
Many thanks to Alan in
year 12 for allowing us to use his music composition and arrangement 'A Time
and Place' on this page.
but not least, a special thanks to the wonderful ladies operating in the
print room for helping us resize the artworks.
