Teacher in Charge: Miss R. StewartRecommended Prior Learning
Maturity, enthusiasm and the ability to work independently are required. Students who have not successfully completed a Level 2 Art Painting course must consult with Miss Stewart or Mr Soltero and may not be able to undertake a full Level 3 course.
Students develop and extend ideas in a mature body of art work with teacher guidance. Researching contemporary artists, students learn to apply their research to advance their own work, producing a sophisticated painting folio that can form the basis of their submission if they wish to apply for any Art or Design based tertiary programme. Guidance is provided for all tertiary applications.
Refer to the links below to see examples of student work.
Entry to tertiary Art or Design based courses is often through the submission of a folio showcasing a range of work, 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.
See Mr Soltero for more information.
If a student achieves 14 Level 3 credits in this course it will be counted as an approved subject for University Entrance.
