Year 13 Art For Interest (13ARI)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Harman


Year 12 Art For Interest or HOD approval.

Art for Interest (ARI) is an alternative to taking the Visual Art pathways.  Students taking 12 or 13 ARI cannot take any other 12 or 13 Visual Art subject. It will target those students who have not succeeded in Year 11 ARP and require more time such as SEN students and those not requiring NCEA including International students.

This two-year course will offer similar achievement standards as the ARP pathway (Art Practical), however it will be responsive to the individual needs of students and the pace they will learn at. The students will use a range of drawing processes which will provide the basis for an external board within painting (Internal 2.4 Painting AS91321 - Produce a systematic body of work that shows understanding of art making conventions and ideas within painting).  

Students will explore ideas of Modernism looking at artist such Giacometti, Moore and Picasso.
