NCEA Level 1 Visual Art

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms F. Dwyer

Recommended Prior Learning

There are no entry requirements but Year 10 Art is highly recommended.

Students will work on an individually lead programme based around a theme of their choosing. Students will study a range of artist models and apply the knowledge, skills and techniques learned into their own practical work. Students will complete three Achievement Standards during the year. This will include an extensive external Achievement Standard consisting of a 2 x panel folio where students will demonstrate work within the visual disciplines of sculpture, painting, and printmaking.


Year 11 Art leads directly to the senior specialist Art disciplines of Design, Photography, Painting, Sculpture, and Printmaking.
