Future Possibilities

Successful completion of this course gives students entry to Art Photography 31F. Entry to tertiary Art, Design or Photography courses is often 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 2 courses: Art Design, Art Photography, Art Painting, Art Printmaking or Art Sculpture. 

These can be taken as either full year or as a semester course. 

See Mr Soltero for more information.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Access to a good quality digital camera is recommended.

Recommended Prior Learning

Maturity, enthusiasm and the ability to work independently. Level 1 Art is strongly recommended because of the skills learned in managing relatively large independent projects and more especially the creative process. Students who have not successfully completed Level 1 Art may not be able to undertake a full Level 2 semester Photography course.
