Level 3 Painting

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms K. Robson

At this Level students should have good drawing skills and painting ability. This course focuses on the development of ideas through a self selected and self researched theme. This course will give you University Entrance if you complete the external Achievement Standard.

The main focus of the course is to develop and  refine skills in developing ideas that are systematic and evolve over the year to produce original artworks (at least aim to), through researching a theme and through researching relevant established arts practice. The theme should be a concept that is based on something like a cultural, political, social, historical or environmental issue that you, the student have insight or personal views on. Alternatively the theme could be based on exploring formal properties of art-making.

Planned Total Credits Offered 18

Optional assignment Credits Offered 4
