APH8

Art Photography - NCEA Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Rogerson

This course allows students to develop their knowledge of Photographic Conventions and Techniques in a Visual Arts context. The course emphasises the importance of using established Artist Model examples (primarily from Photographers but also other Art fields) to inform their own work. 

This is a crucial part of the course, as students are expected to go beyond making technically competent images to developing conceptual and thematic ideas for themselves. The course consists of both Internal and External Standards. Completion of the External Portfolio (usually due at the start of Term 4) is the main goal in the latter part of the year and students can also contribute work towards an end of year Exhibition.

This is an approved subject for University Entrance.
