2013 Visual Arts 3.2 Investigate and use ideas and methods in the context of a drawing study in paintingLevel 3 Credits 6 Assessment InternalSubfield Visual ArtsDomain Practical ArtRegistration date 23 November 2005 Date version 23 November 2005 publishedThis achievement standard involves investigating ideas and methods relating to art and art works in the context of the drawing study in painting. It also involves using established drawingprocesses, procedures, materials and techniques appropriate to ideas and methods studied, and using drawing to generate, analyse and clarify ideas. How? Collect, research, Use drawing to think on Process all your collected information assemble & collate paper. Use drawing as a & recombine & transform to make information including process where ideas are original work subject, theme, systematically explored in Work beyond the artist models pictorial issues, a continuum. Clarify your methods & intentions. techniques & artist references Present options Respond to, analyse & make decisions about what you have done Evidence of the ability to generate, analyse and clarify ideas will be identified in a range of work within the selected field. This may involve different processes, procedures, materials & techniques, all of which can be understood as drawing. In effect, being able to make paintings is dependent upon recognizing & using drawing as a thinking & working process
Level 3 Visual Arts Painting Tasks FOR 3.2 The evidence MUST be critically edited, ordered & related to show the nature & order of steps taken.TASK 1The objective of this task is to investigate the subject matter selected as thestarting point & to identify the content & pictorial elementsReferencing the subjectProduce one drawing to establish the subject for this body of work.You may work directly from the subject or from photographs.Consider pictorial elements such as viewpoint, perspective & tonal values.Consider what aspects of the subject you want to investigate in the works.Refer to the aspects of recent & established practice you have alreadyresearched to inform the direction & decisions you make in this drawing.Select materials methods & processes appropriate to the subject & issuesaddressed & the painting process you will use.TASK 2The objective of this task is to’ investigate the subject matter & generate arange of ideas’ with reference to the artists studied & the pictorial issuesidentified in previous work‘Developing & investigating ideas in the context of a drawing study’Produce three small drawings or paint studies that present a series ofideas in a continuum drawn from the subject matter selected & with referenceto your research into established practice.Size of work to be A5 approximatelyRespond to each work as you proceed & evaluate & refine your ideas as theydevelop. Your drawings should also demonstrate consideration for theselected painting processes & the pictorial issues implicit in the processes tobe used‘Use an analytical and evaluative approach to investigate a particular form ofartwork to identify specific ideas and methods to develop a coherent drawingstudy’Show your thinking & working process
TASK 3‘Use established drawing processes, procedures, materials & techniquesappropriate to ideas & methods studied’Produce two paintings to demonstrate your ability to use the selected paintprocess, materials, techniques & methods of application appropriately.In these paintings you should continue the exploration & clarification of ideashowever the specific focus should be on the method & use of media in adrawing context.Refer to recent & established practice & experiment with the materials &supports available.The objective of this sequence is to identify a selected drawing approach &the materials, methods, techniques & processes appropriate to the selectedsubject & field of study with reference to established practiceTASKS(a) painting 1 (1 hour)1 x A4Choose your favourite A5 work from Task 2: Identify the area of this workyou feel is most successful.Make a note of the materials and techniques used in this work. You willphotocopy this enlarging that area to A4. Work over this in the materials andtechniques used in your most successful A5.(b) painting 1 (1 hour) 1 x A4Repeat this process for your next work, this time copying the work you havejust completed. Identify key terms, shape, texture, colour, background,foreground. You must copy this work and cut the copy up, rearranging eitherby cutting shapes out and placing on a new painted ground or re-assemblingand pasting down onto a new A4 sheet of paper. Work over this with themedia and techniques used in the previous work.You now have 1 hour to analyse these works in a small series of sketches inpreparation for 3 final works which you will complete in class time.(c) (3 small sketches in preparation for work to be complete for Task 4 - 20minutes each work)1 X A3Divide your A3 page into three, to generate the 3 small sketches. You mustuse charcoal to sketch the first work, aquarelle pencil for the next work andIndian ink for the 3rd. You have approximately 20 minutes for each work.
TASK 4The objective of this task is to demonstrate a ‘systematic & purposefulapproach to generating, analysing & clarifying ideas based on recent &established practice’Use drawing to generate, analyse & clarify ideas.Conclude the series with three works with the specific intention ofclarifying the ideas, pictorial elements, methods, materials, techniques& processes in conjunction with the artist model research.This series should continue from the previous investigations & demonstratethe ability to evaluate, select, refine & re-present ideas in a drawing context.The final work in the series should represent a conclusion to the body of workin all aspects.Size may vary but no work is to be larger than A4 in cumulative dimensions(approximately)

Explanatory Notes • Processes refers to the use of particular techniques with tools, technologies and materials. • Procedures refers to the order and nature of steps taken in getting from the beginning to the end of the problem. • Synthesise refers to the ability to bring together ideas and methods from different sources, to integrate them in the development of the student’s own work. • Evidence of the ability to generate, analyse and clarify ideas will be identified in a range of work within the selected field. • Clarifying ideas requires students to specify parameters for investigation, it does not imply that these ideas will be resolved.
– This may involve different processes, procedures, materials and techniques, all of which can be understood as drawing. This practice is dependent upon recognising and using drawing as a thinking and working process. – Drawing is an ongoing decision-making process that enables a continuum to be established and maintained. Aspects of drawing are also identifiable in finished work. – Painting drawing may include drawing notes, sketches, monochromatic and colour studies, collage, photographs, digital processes, developmental and finished works. – Painting drawing should be used as central means of practical investigation. Where it is appropriate, students may include processes, procedures, methods and techniques from other art fields.• Systematically means to reflect critically on each step in the development of work. Information generated from this reflection will be used to inform and clarify ideas.• The drawing study should include work belonging to the cultural milieu and interests of the student and involve the study of work and ideas from recent and established practice. Where relevant, this evidence could also take account of the work of contemporary New Zealand artists.• Digital processes may be used as part of the drawing process. Teachers and candidates may choose to combine traditional practice with other processes such as digital image-making. Successful Visual Arts teaching programmes will ensure that candidates maintain control of the processes, both digital and traditional, used in the production of their work.• The evidence may be based on an idea, subject matter, problem or situation, and must be related to established practice.• Note: Learning from established practice is the use of artists as models of practice; investigating the context within which art works are made to inform the students own work. The evidence will be critically edited, ordered and related to show the nature and order of steps taken.
