Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Soltero

Students develop and extend ideas in a mature body of art work with teacher guidance. They research contemporary artists and learn to apply that research to advance their own work. They produce sophisticated prints that can form part of a submission if they wish to apply to any art/design/photography based tertiary programme. Guidance is provided for all tertiary applications.

Refer to the links below to see examples of student work.

Future Possibilities
Entry to tertiary Art, Design or Photography courses is often through folio submission 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, or Art Painting, Art Printmaking or Art Sculpture. These can be taken as 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.
