Level 3 Art
What is Art?
Visual Art is a creative subject that will provide students with an opportunity to develop art knowledge and skills. They will create artworks while learning about the work of various artists and the cultural and social contexts that their artworks reflect. Students can study visual arts to gain qualifications or just for general interest.
What this course involves
In level 3 painting, students can study, develop and produce a body of work. They will learn to critically engage, evaluate and investigate artistic procedures and practices. Researching the work of contemporary artists will inform the development of their own ideas. Although the emphasis is on painting, student work can demonstrate influences from design, printmaking, sculpture and photography. New Zealand Scholarship exams are designed to extend very high achieving level 3 students.
