Next Steps

So all students in Year 12 have seen folios from previous years, have been given a good amount of time to think through their own concept and have browsed images by several artists online and in books. Students have also had some time getting to used to the camera and shooting. Clearer decisions need to be made about what concept looks like.

Natasha Muston has made a genuinely good start at getting this going and has taken her first shoot and posted it online. The rest of our Year 12 students need to look at this and consider this.

Last year's blogs also hold a lot of good information and you can see the flow of ideas in these.

From this week, students will be required to start planning their time in class for the week and then following through on it.  For example from 2013. This plan will be posted online and this year, each week I will make comment on how successful it was in my eyes. As this address is to be advertised to the parents of the students in this class, that is going to make it really accessible for parents/whanau to see where students are at in this subject.

Year 13 Research is extremely strong this year and the blogs are a good demonstration of this. I am really pleased with Brooke Henry's definition of Cinematography and Daneille Ward's definition of Urban Environment in particular. These are really well done and ideas are flowing well.

Plan for the week

Sorry this took a while, couldn't load the image to begin with...

Where to find your course work and feedback for your class this year:

On our google site:
Book mark this if you haven't already.

If you hover over the NCEA Visual Art levels' 1 - 3 button, you get to see the course outlines drop down. you can select to see one of those there. 

Otherwise, if you want your class page, click on the blue tab directly. it takes you here:

You should all know what line you are in by now. Clicking on the correct line, will take you to your own class resources, including our shared google sheet, which also has your blog addresses on it. Because of the nature of google sites at this point, unless you have editing permissions for the whole page. you will only be able to VIEW this sheet from here. However, you do have it in your google drive in 'shared with me'. 

This is where all the feedback we have talked through in class should be recorded. It means you can always go back to it. Now that you know how to find it, I would like you to make sure you are always act…

End of Term Three

Deadlines for folios are as follows:

Level 1 (1.3) is due 18th October at 4pm
Level 2 (2.4 Paint, Design and Photography) is due 25th October at 4pm
Level 3 (3.4 Paint, Print, Design, Photography) is due 1st November 4pm. 

Art Exhibition of student work will be held on Monday 4th November from 5.30pm - 7pm. This is open to everyone. It may not include all of the level 2 folios due to NZQA timelines for moderation, but those not physically present will be represented in a data show.

I will be looking to select one piece of student work for the exhibition invite, which is most likely to be from within the year 12 group.
