Level 3 Visual Arts
Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Chuck
What will I learn and how will I learn?
This course focuses on building upon the skills students have learned in Level 2 Art, and further develops their practical skills and awareness of Art conventions and contemporary practice. The course will prepare them for Level 3 NCEA assessment. It mainly involves students developing ideas within their own art works based around a subject chosen by themselves. They will learn to select a topic of self-interest to explore and develop in art-making, to use model artists to help inform their art works and to make decisions about media, conventions, and ideas within their own painting practice.
