10 Art - Line 1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Mears

Year 10 Art - ‘Whakaahua tatuhui pukapuka’  [the  drawing project]  is  a project that spans 6 months of experimental  art making  that  aims  to lift the student's thinking skills and knowledge of art & artists and their ways of working.  During the project  Year 10 students will explore drawing, painting and mixed media techniques such as stencilling,  silhouettes, forgeries and will use these skills to start to compose and produce their own art works. Students will also record and make their own glossary of art terms and will learn about the ways established artists work by viewing artworks and learning to visually analyse and  interpret artworks. Whakaahua tatuhui pukapuka will build the confidence needed to step up to NCEA Level 1 Visual Arts.
