NCEA Level 3 Fine Art - The Artist's Muse

13ARTF
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. YATES

You will look for your muse from which to inflame your creative passions in an expression of inspirational art works.  For hundreds of years artists have sought a muse to ignite their creative spark that feeds the dreams of each new civilization.  Your ultimate goal is to inspire and transcend the benign and ordinary and rise on the flames of inspiration and creativity to create a range of outstanding art works.

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.
