Art: Highschool

Highschool Visual Arts with Nina

WHAT: This class is for highschool-aged home educated students, 13+ years.

WHEN: Thursdays 2:00pm -3:00pm, 9 weeks commencing 23/07/20 in term 3

WHERE: HASCA Hub (Rendle Room), YMCA North Shore, 5 Akoranga Drive, Auckland

HOW MUCH: Cost is dependent on numbers but we anticipate it will be no more than $65 per student. Materials are additional.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAMME: This class teaches across multiple levels helping students to gain a deeper understanding & appreciation of art making processes.

Students will learn to use pencil, charcoal, coloured pencils, ink, acrylic paints & mixed media to produce related artworks inspired by the study of highly regarded artist models.

Those working towards NCEA will be guided & supported through the assessment process & requirements & those not wanting to do this will be guided in work suited to their level.

Past students have done exceptionally well in NCEA Art with students last year in levels 1, 2 & 3 all coming top of NZ at Tekura.

In 2017, 2018, & 2019 all students who completed NCEA art in these classes across all levels were endorsed with Merit or Excellence in Visual Art.

TUTOR / COORDINATOR: This class is facilitated by Nina Lawgun.

Two of the Homeschool level 1 art students received excellences across the board therefore were endorsed with excellence in NCEA Level 1 Visual Arts. In 2019, three of the Homeschool level 2 students earned excellences & merits for their folios and were endorsed with either Merit or Excellence in NCEA Level 2 Visual Art. The one Level 3 Art & Scholarship student was awarded excellence in all her level 3 internals and externals resulting in an excellence endorsement in NCEA Level 3 Visual Art. 

Due to their excellent NCEA results and their efforts &  achievements throughout the year the following students also received awards for excellence in visual art from Tekura. Nina’s understanding is that only one student at each level across the entire North Island receives these awards. The awards acknowledge that these students have done exceptionally well, earning excellences across the board this year.

Jenna: The Tekura Award for Excellence in NCEA Level 1 Visual Art.
Ruby: The Tekura Award for Excellence in NCEA Level 2 Visual Art.
Samantha: The Tekura Award for Excellence in NCEA Level 3 Visual Art.
