Level 2 Painting and Printmaking

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mx R. Goldstein

This is a very practical, hands-on course. Students will choose painting or printmaking and will develop their own ideas and themes over the year, in consultation with the teacher. These are based on the students’ own interests. Students will be challenged to explore their relationship with pictorial space, surface, risk-taking, and possibilities. Students take inspiration from established artists’ ideas, methods, and techniques. 

There are 12 external credits where students display a folio of their year’s work. There are four internal credits, with an option to complete another four internal credits. Opportunities arise each year for students to publicly exhibit their work and enter competitions.

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.
