Summary of Programme:
Duration: 1 year (full-time), 2 years (part-time)
Delivery: On-site or Distance Delivery (study from home)
Major and Minor Courses:
The Diploma of Art and Creativity (Honours) programme (NZQA Level 6) is one year full-time (equivalent 30 hours per week), or two years part-time (equivalent 15 hours per week).
The Honours programme encourages students to be self-driven, with a goal of further increasing coherence and improving the technical skills achieved in the Diploma, level 5. Honours students’ work will reveal the emergence of a personal style and a technical fluency which connects with this style.
Students are able to select majors and minors from available courses and will write their own briefs for each major and minor course. This is supported with on-site classes, distance learning resources and supervised independent study. All Honours students (on-site and distance delivery), work with a personal mentor who helps guide students as they begin to work more independently. At this level students will be increasingly working with a greater level of personal focus and self-direction and will be producing work in line with their own goals.
Students will be vigorously participating in school exhibitions and moving beyond the school to share their work by way of group shows and publications. This will support feedback from tutors and mentors, help them to develop their own identity as a creative person and increase their understanding of how art communication and creativity connects with the wider world.
