Visual Art

The Visual Arts Department is part of the Technology Block. Students have access to two work spaces; the main art room for junior classes and a senior workroom. Senior art students are encouraged to use the senior workroom before school, during study lessons and after school. Being situated in the Technology Block allows art students easy access a wide range of equipment for their projects, as well as the skills and knowledge of the Technology teaching staff.

The Visual Arts at Ōtaki College explores a wide variety of visual images, materials, processes and conventions within the fields of drawing, painting, printmaking, and design. Senior students are encouraged to select their own themes, with teacher guidance, for their years’ study so allowing each student to work within an area of personal interest.

The curriculum is divided into four areas of study:
  • Understanding the Arts in Context
  • Developing Practical Knowledge
  • Developing Ideas
  • Communicating and Interpreting
Junior VISUAL ART
​Our Year 7&8, 9 and 10 Art programmes are centred on developing skills, understanding and appreciation for art works, artists and art making processes. The programmes we deliver aim to develop students who value exploring, discussing and developing their own creativity and technical skill level in fields of drawing, painting, printmaking and design. The completion of year 9 and 10 Visual Art provides a strong foundation for completing art at the senior level.
