This is a compulsory course which all year 9 students do twice a week for half a year. Students complete 3 units using a range of media including drawing with pencil and pens, design work with Ipads and painting. Students will learn the process of gathering resources in a variety of ways, developing ideas for an artwork before completing the work using practical skills and techniques. They will look to the work of New Zealand and International artists for inspiration. All work is organised by the individual student in their own personal folder.
