Level 3 Visual Art
Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Mrkusic
This course engages the students academically and creatively. They will continue to build on their knowledge of art making traditions, extend ideas and clarify outcomes. This course demands a rigorous output of artwork and a high level of commitment to developing a comprehensive body of work that is both conceptual and technically astute. This course at Level Three is teacher guided unlike Level One and Two which is teacher directed. NZQA stipulates a guided course at Level Three as preparation for Tertiary Study.
