L1ARTD

Level 1 Digital Art

Course Description

This course is about discovering and making Digital Art using drawing tablets, computers, and cameras to form an individual programme. Students are encouraged to be innovative, and explore art-making which is relevant to their own interests. Students will follow a programme, but essentially create their own theme and developmental focus, and use artist role models for inspiration. 

There are 14 internal credits in this course. Alternatively, students can be offered the 12 external folio board exam credits and four internal credits. If a student is completing the Visual Art course, they can negotiate which standards they will complete in this course, but only one exam is possible and one endorsement.

What is taught in courses varies from year to year. This course could include:
Drawing is used to explore and develop ideas. Students will use a range of design and illustration techniques using Photoshop and Illustrator.

Costs

The Board of Trustees has again asked to opt into the Ministry of Education donation scheme. Doing so resulted in the ability to waive student fee donations. Kaiapoi High School aims to deliver quality educational courses over and above those that which is funded by the Ministry. It is likely the School will opt into the donation scheme for 2023, however parental contribution for the costs of trips and activities where participation is optional, and/or components not covered by the Government grant, may be requested. We appreciate the financial support our families make to the School.
