Level 3 Visual Arts

Course Description

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.

Submitting Internal Assessment
Due dates for panels are guidelines, but the final date is non-negotiable. 

Resubmission and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in student work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available. Further assessment opportunities are not available in every standard.

NOTE: Course is subject to change with the review of standards at the end of each year.
