The Visual Arts Faculty has customised facilities and expert teaching staff. We cater for students’ creative learning from Year 9 through to Year 13 and develop in our students a high standard of art making and a strong understanding of visual communication techniques.

Visual Arts

  • Credit: Nil
  • Trips: Nil
  • Cost: $25

Course: This course is focused on developing student's technical skills in drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. Students engage in projects which challenge and deepen their understanding of the physical world as well as stimulate creative imagination. Students will work in a variety of media and investigate traditional and contemporary artistic approaches. Studying Visual Arts will develop student's ability to think creatively and learn important visual communication skills. This course prepares students for further study in the Visual Arts, where they can specialise in Senior Art subjects of Design, Photography, Painting, Sculpture and Art history.

  • Credit: 8 + 22
  • Trips: 2
  • Cost: Level 1A:$75 + $15 subscription per subject (maximum $30 per student) for the use of the Adobe Suite at school per year. Level 1B: $75 + $15 subscription per subject (maximum $30 per student) for the use of the Adobe Suite at school per year
  • Qualification: NCEA Level 1

Course: This is an innovative programme designed to introduce and extend a student's understanding of art making, through the exploration of a broad range of ideas, techniques and creative processes. Students also learn to analyse ideas about artists and artworks and relate this knowledge back into their art making. This course provides the essential foundations necessary for students to have ongoing success in Level 2 and 3 Visual Art specialist subjects and is therefore a prerequisite for Level 2 Design, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Art History. L1A: This first year of the Level 1 course introduces students to techniques and processes specific to the fields of Painting, Design, Sculpture and Photography. Each unit of work has its own exciting theme and students explore a range of technical skills linked to artists' methods and ideas. Through the year students will also have the opportunity to be introduced to digital art-making processes using Adobe Photoshop. Students will submit work towards two Internal Achievement Standards in this year. L1B: In the second year of this course students will develop artistic responses to one broad theme. They will learn to generate, develop and clarify these thematic ideas using a wide range of media and processes. The focus of this year is on developing conceptual thematic ideas and specialist skills for Painting, Design, Sculpture and Photography, which become individual subject options for students in Level 2. In the first half of the year students will initially submit work towards two internal Achievement Standards and then produce a portfolio of work towards their External assessment. Students are reminded that there is a heavy homework requirement with all Visual Art subjects.

  • Credit: 20
  • Trips: Nil
  • Cost: $90
  • Qualification: NCEA Level 2

Course: This course builds on painting and multi-media skills and techniques that have been developed in Level 1 Art. At this level students select from a range of themes to guide their individual art-making. A conceptual approach is encouraged to stimulate creative, 'out-of-the-box' thematic ideas and experimental painting approaches. Students will also build upon the ideas of both traditional and contemporary artists in their own practise. With permission of the Head of Faculty, students may take up to two practical Visual Art subjects i.e. any combination of two of the following: L2ADS, L2APA, L2APH or L2ASC. In addition to this students could also benefit from taking L2AHST which will further enhance their understanding of art and artists. This course leads directly into Level 3 Painting and is especially beneficial for students interested in studying Art, Design or Architecture at a Tertiary level. Students are reminded that there is a heavy homework requirement with all Visual Art subjects. This course is a prerequisite for Level 3 Painting.

  • Qualification: NCEA Level 2 Art History
  • Prerequisites: Strong performance in Level 1 English or History, or by Head of Faculty permission.

Course: The Topic of study for this course is "Towards Modernism" which covers 19th Century Art in France. This was a time of dramatic social and political change in world history brought on by the Age of Enlightenment, French Revolutions and the Industrial Age. Art movements from Neo-Classicism to Post Impressionism are studied to unravel artists' ideas and views as a reflection of life in this rapidly changing and tumultuous world. Study in Art History is complementary to other subjects such as History and Classics and does not need to be taken in conjunction with Practical Art. It is however a valuable subject for Visual Art students and is especially beneficial to those students interested in studying Art, Design or Architecture at a Tertiary level. All credits gained in the course are NCEA Literacy credits in either reading or writing. Students choosing this course must show an ability to respond to teacher led research and written tasks in the classroom and the ability to work independently. This course requires strong analytical and literacy skills. Evidence of a strong performance in Level 1 English, or History recommended. This course leads directly on to Level 3 Art History.
