NCEA Level 2 Art History

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. YATES

Art History is a highly relevant area of study.  Throughout history art work and visual images have been used to comment on society and to challenge the status quo.  This tradition continues today and is arguably growing more powerful due to dominance of the visual image in mainstream and social media.  By looking at art works we see how both art and historical events influence and inform each other.  There is a skills focus on analytical and forma writing and on research.  Areas of study include but are not limited to:

  • Neo Classicism and the French Revolution and the Enlightenment
  • Romanticism and the Myth of the Orient
  • Realish and the Industrial Revolution
  • Impressionism and Bourgeoisie
  • Post Impressionism and Modernism
