STUDENTS MAY WORK FROM THEIR OWN PHOTOGRAPHS OR DIGITAL COMPOSITIONS.HOWEVER, WHEREVER IT IS POSSSIBLE STUDENTS SHOULD WORK FROM DIRECT OBSERVATION.Students are encouraged to focus research projects on work relating to their own cultural milieu and interests. Where relevant, research willinclude examples/approaches from contemporary established New Zealand and international practice.Approaches refers to artists’ ways of working. Approaches taken may be derived from artists’ response to subject matter, technical processes,concepts, ideas, and historical, cultural or geographic locations.Relationships may include similarities and differences, links, both implicit and explicit, between ideas, methods, techniques, influences, theoriesand contexts, for example social, political, cultural, historical.To analyse, students would need to investigate the features of selected approaches and/or examples of art works. To critically analyse, studentswould need to investigate the key features of selected approaches and explain the significance of relationships.Established practice refers to work by artists that is recognised as belonging to a particular tradition, style, genre or type.Research includes: Locating, gathering and analysing information relevant to the selected approaches and/or examples of art works Student’s own analysis and reflection on art works Practical investigation such as drawing notes, sketches, monochromatic and colour studies, collage, technical experiments/studies, developmental works, research drawing sequences, annotated drawings and digital data files.Evidence for this achievement standard may be in the form of: visual diaries or data files with reports, annotated bibliographies, interviews,notes, visual maps, diagrams; slide talks with notes; seminar presentations.Sources for research information could include relevant publications (e.g. books, journals, magazines, catalogues), internet, video, films, slidelibrary, the artists’ works studied, interviews, discussions, gallery and studio visits, marae, museums, public places, private collections.It is recommended students have access to quality examples of work. Contexts may include: gallery or museum, marae, public or privatecollections, urban and/or natural environment, studio or workshop situations.

Drawing is the CENTRAL means of generating, analyzing, clarifying & regenerating ideas derived from the research or in depth study from the selected tradition. All artists work with a personal vocabulary. The vocabulary of an artist consists of pictorial elements, Demonstrate a depth &range of ideas & use a systematic & critical approach.

TASK 1 : 1 x A3 page Select from ONE of the SUBJECT or THEMATIC categories as listed. Consider carefully & make sure that the subject or theme chosen is manageable, accessible & relevant, & of sufficient interest to sustain a years work RESEARCH the treatment of your subject within a historical & a contemporary context. PREPARE A TIMELINE IDENTIFYING THE MAJOR STYLISTIC DEVELOPMENTS WITHIN YOUR SELECTED CATEGORY (time frame 2 lessons – you may do this on the computer)TASK 2: 2 x A3 pages (Two of the artists you have used in your work this year – use the task sheet provided) Select TWO ARTISTS & study ONE work from each. Comment on each work in depth & compare & contrast the way the two artists treat the subject. (To be recorded in the diary/workbook) (Time frame One week)TASK 3: 1 x A3 page (You did this as a class Colin McCahon/Bill Sutton in Term 1) a) Select a New Zealand artist & identify the tradition (what time did he work – what are the influences/genre) of the work selected (description & context) b) List the concepts & ideas in selected works & comment on how these relate to other work by the same artist. c) Discuss the LINKS between the identified tradition & the influences on the New Zealand artist studied. (Time frame One week)TASK 4: 4 x A4, 1 x A3 Use ONE of your selected artists AS A MODEL for the drawing portfolio. (The artist selected MUST represent relevant & contemporary practice) Produce a Portfolio of FIVE drawings & painting studies (Time frame for the drawing sequence: Two weeks)Critically analyse & discuss your own work & demonstrate through the practical investigation and research approaches withinestablished painting practice. Relationships between approaches will be investigated to consider the influences, methods and ideas incontext. In the practical investigation you must work from the theme or SUBJECT MATTER selected for your research Record all the research information in your art diary including the practical investigation. Label & identify each task. Use your own words & identify any quotes with footnotes & acknowledge all source material
