Course Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Zimmerman

This course will continue to develop students' knowledge range of contemporary Maori art-making techniques. These may include the use of pattern, repetition, story-telling and the use of symbols with meaning.

They will then look at a range of contemporary Maori artists as well as art making techniques. Students will continue to complete a significant personalised work that integrates a range of alternative art-making techniques and pushes students away from the 2-Dimensional page and into a 3-Dimensional construction: Stencils, screen-printing, woodblock printing and carving, weaving, etc.
