Student work examples are on our blogsite which also lists all internal assessment tasks; 

• Students select their own theme with teacher guidance within one of three categories: Product, Event or Awareness.  

• Students do not need to know how to draw but we do use sketch books to record ideas. 

• Students learn to use digital media, such as Photoshop or Illustrator, following the development of their ideas.

Future Possibilities 

Entry to tertiary Art and/or design courses is often through folio submission, therefore students considering studying Art and/or design at University should enrol in two of the following Level 2 courses: Art Design, Art Photography, Art Painting, Art Printmaking, Art Sculpture.  See Mr Soltero for more information. These courses could be either full year or for a semester. See Mr Soltero for more information.

Achieving 14 Level 3 credits in this course counts as an approved subject for University Entrance.
