Senior Art 2017- enrolments open



Classes are open to all high-school aged students with an interest in formal art studies.



Terms 1 – 4, 2017: Thursdays, 2:30 – 4:30pm

(Following the junior art & senior basketball.)



Northcote YMCA, Akoranga Drive.


In term 1 we will be looking at traditional Japanese arts and the influence they have had on contemporary art. This will involve producing drawings and paintings inspired by our studies.

In term 2 we will be experimenting with printmaking techniques and the use of ink as an art medium.

In term 3 we will be looking at the anatomical drawings of Leonardo da Vinci and their influence on contemporary anatomical artworks. This will involve drawing and painting bones and muscles.

In term 4 we will be using our year’s work to inform external folios to be exhibited at the end of the term.




We will be producing work to address a mix of NCEA Visual Arts & Art History standards in order to help facilitate student’s achievement should they decide to go on and study art through Te Kura. Some past students have successfully submitted their work to Te Kura for credit consideration at level 1 and 2.


Alternatively, ACE students enrolled with Homeschooling NZ can earn a credit towards their certificates upon completion of the course.
