NCEA Level 3 Visual Arts Painting

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms F. Dwyer

Students are able to take more than one Visual Arts course. Each course counts as a unique domain for University Entrance. For example students taking Visual Arts Photography and Visual Arts Painting would count as 2 separate University Entrance Domains.

This course has a NZQA Scholarship option.

Visual Arts Painting is a course for students who wish to work on an individually chosen proposal.

Students will be examined on their practical knowledge in painting. This will be achieved by students submitting a variety of work consisting of research tasks, drawing notes, a developed sequence of drawings, small works and finished paintings. These will show how the pictorial ideas and the relationships between such ideas, methods, materials and forms are developed, clarified and resolved. Students will use both traditional and contemporary artists as models for their own work throughout the year in order to develop their individual proposals. Students will be encouraged to enter the Scholarship examination.
