10 Core Art (Half year course)
Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. Christoffersen
- Students will explore a range of art-making processes and techniques including painting, printmaking, drawing and design
- Students will generate and develop ideas in response to a variety of motivations and artist models
- Students will describe and evaluate how art works and processes are used to communicate meaning
- Students will investigate the relationship between art and its social context.
Year 10 Core Art includes learning through observational drawing, processes using wet and dry media, collage, printmaking and painting. Research themes in this year include personal whakapapa, New Zealand history and legends and using current issues to inform artworks.
The half year course will provide the foundation needed for Year 11 Visual Art and/or Art Photography.
From Year 11 Art students can continue with NCEA Level 2 & 3 Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking and Design.
We aim to enable every student to have the course that they prefer, however, some courses have limited places or pre-requisits that may restrict the student's choice.
