Level 2 Visual Arts Photography

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs S. Carlan-Riddell

This course builds on the skills and knowledge gained in your Year 11 Visual Arts class. You will explore a range of artistic conventions, ideas and techniques in the medium of Photography, and then apply that to your own portfolio project. Your internal assignments will contribute towards the external assessment, and the project will be a year long investigation into your subject matter. Your project will allow you to investigate topics that matter to you, and will allow you to express your original ideas, wrapped around the pictorial issues of your chosen artist models. 

If you have not taken Level One Visual Arts, but have relevant prior experience, either at at school or otherwise, please see Mrs. Carlan-Riddell to get permission to enroll in the course.
