Level 2 Visual Arts
Successful completion of Level 1 Visual Arts. See Ms Mallinson for consideration of alternative entry options.
Students will improve their ability to develop, clarify, and regenerate visual ideas using a range of art making conventions. They will investigate relationships between the production of art works and their social context, investigate art and artists, and learn to identify and evaluate how art ideas and art making processes are used to communicate meaning. Students are expected to develop a high degree of responsibility for their work and creative ideas during this course. They can select the option line for senior visual arts that best fits their timetable. Students wishing to complete full year courses in both painting and printmaking should select art on two option lines. There will be students learning at NCEA levels one, two and three in the same class. In term one, all senior art students will work together developing art works for their own community exhibition and to fundraise for a local cause. Students will develop a wide range of technical skills in this project, that will form the basis for individualised creative directions during the rest of the year.
