ART PAINTING 31S - Semester

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss R. Stewart

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. They produce sophisticated paintings that can form part of a submission if they wish to apply to any art/design/painting 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, 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 as full year or as a semester course. See Mr Soltero for more information.
