Visual Arts

This course follows on from L2APA

This course builds on the technical and conceptual skills developed in Level 2 Painting and will further student expertise in this field. At this level students will be expected to choose their own themes and study the work of contemporary artists to generate their own individual programmes.

Experimental technical skills with wet and dry media are fostered as students explore a wide range of thematic ideas. Divergent conceptual thinking is encouraged and strong drawing skills are essential for success. There is a large external assessment component to this course which will require students to submit three portfolio panels of original work.

This is a valuable subject for those students interested in studying Art, Design or Architecture at a Tertiary level.
