Level 3 Wearable Arts (Costuming and Special Effects)
Teacher in Charge: Mx R. Goldstein
This is a practical 3D-making course for students who want to create designs for the movie, stage, or fashion world.
Students will enhance their drawing techniques to realise their designs. At this level, students will show further skill and complexity in their work.
Students will explore 3D material problem solving, and choose their own themes to work with, in consultation with the teacher. Students can create sculptures, props, and stage sets, and explore special effects makeup applications. Alternatively, students can follow a 3D costume or fashion garment programme and also create special effects makeup applications.
Opportunities arise each year for students to publicly exhibit their work and enter competitions.

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.
