Shelley ryde on approaches to teaching painting and printmaking
Shelley Ryde Title:Approaches to Painting & Printmaking for NCEA levels 1 to 3
OUTLINE• The process of working from resource material & research to explore methods, processes, procedures & techniques will be discussed & the role of drawing as a thinking & working process at the different levels & in the fields of painting & Printmaking & the use of different thinking skills in art making will be examined in depth.• The thinking strategies that are used when examining artworks as models for learning will be also be addressed. Models used as exemplars underpin much of the learning in the Visual Arts & by developing an understanding of the thinking behind a work of art students are able to extend their own thinking & vocabulary.• The workshop will also look at course planning, sample programmes, the use of a range of materials, techniques & processes & offer some ways of linking these to pictorial issues, artist models & contemporary practice.• The presentation will also examine standards based assessment & will discuss examples of work at different levels & at different standards of achievement.
APPROACHES TO TEACHING LEVEL 1 PAINTING & PRINTMAKING1.1 This achievement standard involves researching art and artworks from Mäori and European traditions to make comment, using art terminology, on art and artworks in relation to their local or contemporary contexts. As such, it aims to acknowledge the bicultural nature of New Zealand art and society.
Level 1 2005RESEARCH & RELATED STUDIES 1.1 Students will demonstrate their ability to:1. Research the theme of the LANDSCAPE in the form of a RESEARCH the artwork of TWO contemporary photo-essay & comment on their NEW ZEALAND ARTISTS who feature aspects of ideas in relation to their art the landscape in their work. practice.

Students are required to produce a photo essay to begin their investigation of the Land. The Photo Essay will providethe reference for the development of ideas to make individual art works .Landscape: A Study of the Occupation of the Land.

1.2 USE DRAWING PROCESSES & PROCEDURES Students are introduced to a range of materials & media & are given tasks that identify pictorial issues & set specific problems such as selection of viewpoints, working with warm colours over a cool ground (complementaries) & exploration of positive & negative compositions with wet & dry media. In these examples by one student the requirements for the standard are met with facility & understandingThis achievement standard involvesrecording information from subject matterusing a variety of drawing media,techniques and conventions, andcomposing elements or forms for a varietyof art-making purposes.

RESEARCH & CONSTRUCTION 1. There are two parts to this unit. THIS UNIT IS NOT PART OF THE GETTING STARTED MARKING FOR NCEA, BUT IT IS A REQUIRED PREPARATION Part 1 Construction. The first task is the assemblage of a three- dimensional spatial model using card & other materials to provide a structure for future Note studies. The model may be any size but The model is required for should contain sufficient identified pictorial beginning the elements to sustain a course of study. The introductory drawing model should also be linked to artistic models if not based on an artistic reference.
