2014 College Art and Technology Exhibition Evening

October 20, 2014 at 2:19 PM

The annual invitation to family and friends to view the artwork of Year 13 NCEA and International Baccalaureate (IB) students was extended last week in a showcase evening held at the Jack Paine Centre.

The showcase displayed the rich variety of visual material that the NCEA Spatial Design, NCEA Fashion and Textiles had produced over the course of the year, and was part of an Internal Achievement Standard that assesses their exhibition design and execution.

For the IB Art students, the display was the summation of two years of visual arts development towards their qualification pathway.

This year there were exhibits from 15 Spatial Design students, one Fashion and Textiles student and one IB Visual Arts student. These included visual material from installation, garment display, digital and manual drawing/painting, modelling, sculpture, animation, and film.

The students were given the brief of setting up an exhibition within the JPC atrium precinct to showcase their design work. They were asked to consider the selected location in terms of how the viewer would interact with the display as well as present the key attributes of their design in the most effective manner.

The students used a range of visual modes from physical models and drawings to digital images and animation.

Invited to speak at the event was a recent architectural graduate from Jasmax Architects, Melissa Harrison who spoke to the students, parents and staff about her ‘life journey’ into architecture.
