Level 3 Visual Arts Photography

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs S. Carlan-Riddell

This course builds on the skills and knowledge gained in your Year 12 Visual Arts Photography class. You will explore a range of artistic conventions, ideas and techniques in the medium of Photography, both historical and contemporary, 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 and theme. 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 and style of working.

Students are encouraged to explore a wide range of artistic practices in Photography, ranging from analogue processes such as solar imaging to advanced digital processes and editing, including moving image. You will also be encouraged to explore fine arts processes in combination with your photography, and 'interfere' with the photographic image, such as collage, paint and mixed media processes. This is a unique opportunity to explore and experiment, and spend the year learning a wide range of techniques, media and approaches to Photography.
