  • Learning and using practical art skills

Future Possibilities
Entry to tertiary Art, Design or Photography courses is usually through the submission of a folio representing a range of art study in the Year 13 courses, therefore students considering studying Art and/or Design at University should enrol in two of the following Level 3 courses: Art Design, Art Photography, Art Painting, Art Printmaking or Art Sculpture. These can be taken full year or as a semester course.

See Ms Connon for more information about this course.

See Mr Soltero for more information about tertiary pathways for Art.

If a student achieves 14 Level 3 credits in this course it will be counted as an approved subject for University Entrance.
