Visual Art

Head of Department – Ms Lisa Mrkusic

Learning in the Visual Arts aims to foster curiosity, build resiliance and encourage students to be engaged, effective participants and problem solvers in today’s constantly changing world.

Art Space is a vibrant, creative area at St Mary’s College.  The open plan teaching area allows for multi-level learning and teaching, and the opportunity for junior and senior classes to work alongside each other.

Junior programmes engage students fully in the creative process and enable opportunity for development of confidence and exploration of a variety of creative ideas, techniques and skills.

Senior classes work through the NCEA assessment framework, aiming to synthesise historic, contemporary, cultural and personal practice; thoughtfully connecting students to place and purpose.
