NCEA Level 1 Art 101
Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Ross
This course focuses on teaching and extending both traditional and contemporary art making techniques. These include drawing, painting, printmaking and digital processes. With reference to works by national and international artists, students will create a related series of drawings, paintings and prints in which they are encouraged to develop their own compositions using their choice of subject matter. They will have the opportunity to explore either a 'Fantasy' or 'Truth' based topic of their choice. Truth based topics could include current or historical events and issues such as popular culture, social/global issues, or identity and their ‘sense of place’ in our cultural milieu. Fantasy topics could be derived from favourite books, movies or computer games. The main focus will be on the external standard worth 12 credits. For this, students create a two panel folio of multi media artworks. Students complete 2 internal Achievement Standards. These standards are learning standards to support and enhance the external folio. Interested students should look at the slide show included in the 'Useful Links' section.
This course may lead on to Level 2 Visual Art Painting, Printmaking, Design and Photography. These 4 disciplines continue as separate subjects in Level 3 for University Entrance.
Recommended Prior Learning
While satisfactory performance in Year 10 Art would be helpful, students may be given entry without the completion of Year 10 at the Head of Department’s discretion. Students and their parents are welcome to contact the HOD of Art to discuss details of the course.
