NCEA Level 3 Visual Arts Printmaking

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 Printmaking and Visual Arts Painting would count as 2 separate University Entrance Domains.

This course has a NZQA Scholarship option.

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

Students will develop and extend their practical and conceptual knowledge of printmaking practices through the process of research, drawing and production of finished works. The printmaking processes covered include relief, drypoint, monoprint, and stencil. Students are encouraged to select the process that best suits their purpose. Students will be encouraged to enter the Scholarship examination.
