Level 2 Visual Art
Visual Art at this level is designed specifically to prepare students for independent but guided study at Level 3 NCEA. The course offers students a balance between a structured programme as well as individual expression through the practice of art making.
Theme / subject matter is chosen. The first internal uses drawing methods to apply understanding of artistic conventions. Artist models are used to present options and students choose from a selection.
The second internal develops on from the first to create a sequence of connected work. Works from both internals are selected to start off panel 1 of the portfolio with scope to develop, re-generate and synthesise further.
Continue to develop, re-generate and synthesise new work to complete panel 2 of the folio.
Reflect on, refine and replace any folio work before the hand-in end of week 2 term 4.
Contributions and Equipment/Stationery
Students are required to purchase a set of 10 acrylic paints and a set of brushes. If these were purchased last year and are still viable then they can be replaced as needed.
The portfolio of practical art work (external exam equivalent) has a charge of $10.00 as this is the take home component
