NCEA Level 2 Fine Art - The Artist Studio

12ARTF
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. YATES

Using allegory and metaphor, you will begin your artistic pursuit of visual splendor.  The artist studio has been an alluring mysterious space where the artist is viewed as the avant garde, a prophet highlighting the future of civilization.  You will visually explore a theme and develop a range of inspirational images.

You will develop ideas around a theme and style, and explore a range of drawing techniques within your chosen field of practice (Painting, Printmaking or Sculpture).  After developing initial ideas as part of the internal assessments, you will use these ideas as a basis for developing work for your external folio assessment.
