Art History Level 3
Teacher in Charge: Mrs D. Sawyer
L3 Art History
The drive to make art has been around since the beginning of time. This course seeks to explore why humans make art, why it is so important, and how art is valued by different groups of society.
In this art history class, the participating students become a community with a shared interest in exploring and discussing ‘big’ questions. Anyone wanting to take this course will need to fully participate in ongoing online discussion, whether through social media type platforms or in the video conference. Discussion is a fundamental part of the course. We will work as a team of art historians to explore those big questions about the importance of art. You will also need to have access to netbook/laptop device in and outside of school.
Assessment InformationStudents will be assessed against two level 3 art history standards.

Courses outlined will only be available if sufficient students wish to take them AND appropriate staff are available to teach them. Courses that do not run may be offered through distance learning and be supported by the Distance Learning Department.
