Welcome to 2016

Hello all you photography students. If you are reading htis you are likely from one of 4 senior classes of about 20 students here at Hornby High School. Your classes are multi levelled across the 3 NCEA levels, but united by theme. These themes are still in development and not yet set fully in some classes. That is ok, it is a part of the process. The Subject based blog is a way of connecting all the students in that subject together; Photography has 11 candidates from 3 classes.

If you are wondering why I am using a blog that already has stuff on it from 2013, it is because I seemed to have had 3 photography blogs all with similar resources and ideas on them, and it seems a bit pointless to keep repeating myself. Some of our blog posts this year will include re-blogging previous posts. There are good pieces of information in them so feel free to read the older ones.

At this point, you all should have started your own blogs. I would expect to see an introductory post about YOU.  Who are  you, why are you studying photography and how did you contribute to us developing an overall class theme?

From there, you should be talking about your concept. This is not set in stone, but concept is the basis of good, intelligent Art.

This week we will be collating all the photography blog links from across the four classes onto this blog, so that you can see what students in the other 3 classes are potentially doing too and contribute to their learning as well.

Your next focus following this will be your first Artist model study, and how to use a D-SLR. This is going to be exciting and very cool work is going to develop from our classes this year.

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:

https://sites.google.com/a/hornby.school.nz/visarts/
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.
