NCEA Level 2 Visual Arts Sculpture and Printmaking

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms V. Sandes

This combined course provides students with a thorough grounding in both Printmaking and Sculpture. Students will develop an understanding of the principles underlying the making of prints and sculptures. They will develop knowledge of current processes, procedures, materials, techniques, and conventions. This will also involve learning the skills of research, generating ideas and developing these ideas in a systematic way through to finished artworks. Students will be encouraged to use contemporary artist models for their own work. Students will be required to produce two external two-panel folios.

Note: Students may take up to three of the NCEA Level 2 Visual Art courses offered: Design, Painting, Photography and Printmaking and Sculpture. However, those students wishing to take more than two of these subjects may only do so with the approval of the HOD and their Divisional Principal
