ART PHOTOGRAPHY 31F – Full Year
Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Connon
Students develop and extend their ideas in a mature body of photographic art work with teacher guidance. The work produced for assessment can also be used to produce a sophisticated photographic art folio that can form the basis of their submission if they wish to apply to any art/design/photography based tertiary programme. Guidance is provided for all tertiary applications.
Photography is central to the cross-over area between Art and multi-media.
The course includes –
• Original art using Digital photography
• Basic camera and lighting skills
• Practical art skills
• Research on artists
Refer to the links below to see examples of student work.
Entry to tertiary Art, Design or Photography courses is often through folio submission representing a variety 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 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.
