This course supports making a body of art work suitable for NCEA at level two. The year concludes with the completion of a two panel A1 size folio. You will work on a theme of your choice supported by an investigation into established practices. Studying other artists gives you ideas and supports you to move forward and strengthen your own practice. We will regularly discuss social, political, philosophical, metaphysical and environmental issues. You will develop skills for working independently and learn how to put your own work in context. The fields/subjects available for study are; design, painting, printmaking and sculpture. You can enter into more than one field or subject.
Regular critiques, reflecting, problem solving, planning, good time management and completing regular homework is highly recommended for this practical course.
Creative process and developing ideas leads to many career pathways. STAR funding is available for those wanting to have real life experiences in visual art during the year. This course leads to scholarship at level three.
