Level 2 Visual Art

Subject Description

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.

Year 12 Visual Art
Luisa Stilwell Year 12 Visual Art

Subject Overview

Term 1
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.

Term 2
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.

Term 3
Continue to develop, re-generate and synthesise new work to complete panel 2 of the folio.

Term 4
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

Recommended Prior Learning

Level 1 Visual Art or an interest in making art and an interview with the HOD

Pathway

Level 1 is usually recommended as entry into Visual Arts but this is not a prerequisite. Sometimes keen Art students who don't take Art at Level 1 choose to come back in at Level 2 and this decision is made after discussion with the HOLA
