Art Photography - NCEA Level 2
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.
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.
Visual Arts 2.2 - Use drawing methods to apply knowledge of conventions appropriate to photography.
Visual Arts 2.3 - Develop ideas in a related series of drawings appropriate to established photography practice
Formative assessment for both these Achievement Standards will be completed by week 10 of this term.
Work continues on 2.2 and 2.3 with the aim of producing a large body of work to inform the production of the External Portfolio.
Visual Arts 2.4 - Produce a systematic body of work that shows an understanding of art-making conventions and ideas within photography. Due end of Term 3 - External Assessment.
Visual Arts 2.5 - Produce a resolved work that demonstrates control of skills appropriate to cultural conventions
This standard informs the work for an End of Year Exhibition. Term 4.
