Level 2 Painting
Monika Ko 2019
Painting is an ever-changing exploration of media, techniques and concepts. This course builds on processes, and techniques initiated in Year 11 Art. Students’ ability to communicate visually is enhanced by a personalised programme of study.
Students will select and structure visual elements, communicate ideas and solve problems through making art works.
Students will be required to complete two major practical assignments. The assignments will include research on aspects of painting practice, journal documentation of related explorations in drawing and a final folio submission. Students will investigate a specific theme, identifying and generating their own individual ideas.
This course offers two achievement standards worth a total of 16 credits. One achievement standard is internally assessed and one is external. Work will be assessed in two different ways:
Internal assessment – Assignments carried out in the first two terms.
External assessment – A two board folio submission.
Please note that work begins on folios at the start of the year by completing the internal standard. This internal standard is designed to prepare students with the necessary skills to complete the folio which can be used the following year to gain entrance to a University visual arts course.
