NCEA Level 1 Visual Arts Paint and Print

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. Malcolm


This is a university endorsed subject that is designed for those interested in exploring their creative potential through drawing, painting, printmaking and digital design.  New skills and techniques will be learned and applied to a range of tasks, while investigating your own subject matter and themes. We start out with dry and wet media artworks, and then learn to develop our ideas using Photoshop. Students will be encouraged to develop their own unique style and personality through their work, and to develop confidence in their creative problem solving abilities. Students can investigate Maori Art as a theme if they wish.

This class is ideally suited for those considering work in the Creative Industries, such as Fine Arts, Fashion Design, Graphic Design, tattoo art, Interior Design, and Photography/Film industries. You will learn:

  • Drawing and Painting realistically from observation
  • Relief printmaking
  • How to use Photoshop, with a little photographic technique also. 
  • How to develop original art using artists as inspiration

Please note: Students can only choose ONE Visual Art subject at Level 1(choose from Mixed media and Photography OR Sculpture OR Paint and Print)
