Although next year timetables are yet to be finalised, course selection is now finished. Any changes to student courses will now take place in January.

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs B. Spencer

Level 3 Painting

Sophie Brown 2021

Students will complete 2 major submissions of work to develop and extend their conceptual and technical skills with processes and procedures in Painting practice. The Internal components of this course will consist of work presented as an individual response to set research and practical tasks.

The External component is a three board folio submission, due early Term 4, and is assessed individually by a panel of external markers. This can be extended by the submission of a scholarship workbook which is an option within the course.

Critical, reflective and creative thinking skills, independent approaches to problem solving and self-directed learning, essential for tertiary study, are promoted and developed.

Course Costs and Equipment/ Stationery requirements

$70 Take Home Contribution that includes external folio submission costs. Students taking this course will produce products that will be taken home and therefore will be asked to pay $70 for the cost of materials.

This cost contributes towards the gesso, paper, card and paint that is used throughout the year. A variety of additional more-specialist materials are provided for the students to experiment with before they commit to buying their own supplies, for example oil paint, watercolour, slow drying acrylic and canvas supports.

Students should have a collection of art materials that they have built upon over their time at EGGS and this will need to be added to during the course of the year. Local art supplies stores will offer a student discount on materials needed for Painting.
