Art Students working on portfolios

Post Date: 15 Nov 18       Category

Term 4 is now well under way.  This is the business end of the year where hard work over the last three terms culminates in NCEA exams and final assessments for our students.

For our Art students, they do not sit an exam but submit a portfolio of their art work which they have worked on for the year.  Our art students are therefore very busy finalising their art work and presenting it ready for marking.  Mrs Gilroy, our Head of Art, says “students choose a theme and work on this topic using a variety of media.  Their ideas are generated from artists models and their own creativity.  Their folio represents hours and hours of hard work from our students.”

Ethan Roentgen and Gayle Wootton are Year 11 art students.  They have been working hard to put the final touches to their art work before it is sent away for marking.  Ethan says “My artwork is a product of lots of hard work and hours of painting.  My portfolio has a  theme of espionage and reconnaissance.  I have chosen these themes because I am interested in the significance they have played in history”.

Gayle says “I decided early on what my theme was.  I used online pictures to help me be creative in my paintings which developed throughout the year”.

Miss Parkin, our Art teacher, says “We have had the most fabulous year and the work our students have done is simply stunning - I am so proud of them”.

Ethan and Gayle are just two of our very talented art students.  The art work being produced from our students is quite amazing and widely celebrated.  We look forward to seeing what grades they have achieved when marks are released in January.
