Level 2 Painting and Printmaking

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mx R. Goldstein

Recommended Prior Learning

To be accepted for this course students must have earned 14 credits from Level 1 Visual Art, or have received HOF approval.

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.
