Art students working on portfolios
Kia ora koutou, Talofa lava
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.
Our Art students submit a portfolio of their art work which they have worked on for the year. Art students are very busy finalising their art work and presenting it 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.
“My artwork is a product of lots of hard work and hours of painting,” Ethan says.
“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,” he says.
“I decided early on what my theme was,” Gayle says. “I used online pictures to help me be creative in my paintings which developed throughout the year.”
“We have had the most fabulous year and the work our students have done is simply stunning — I am so proud of them,” Miss Parkin, our Art teacher says.
Ethan and Gayle are just two of our talented art students. The art work being produced is quite amazing and widely celebrated. We look forward to seeing what grades they have achieved.
