NCEA Level 2 Art - Creative Design

12ARP
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: M. Brown

How do we have a voice when we are bombarded with such a volume of information online? How do we stand out, be noticed? This course is designed to help students create innovative, evocative and outstanding digital artworks, in a range of formats. Students will respond to their own  brief , and will develop a voice which visually echoes social commentary and awareness. Students will visually communicate their individual passion, whether it be character design, magazine or album cover design, advertising/marketing, or branding. Students will explore a range of solutions to meet their brief. The world is what you make it.

This course leads to a University Entrance approved subject.

Field Trips: To be confirmed.
