Level 3 20th Century Art, Architecture & Design (SOS307)
Teacher in Charge: K. Baird
20th Century Art, Architecture and Design
This Level Three Social Science course has a 20th Century Art History focus. The main area of study will be Modern Art, Design and Architecture from 1900 to 1960. We will also investigate key NZ Art works from 1940-2000, and Contemporary Diversity, innovative works created after 2000.These topics cover a range of artistic styles, meanings, theories, and media. The reasons why these artworks continue to be valued by society will also be investigated.
This course will appeal to students interested in art and design, and may be creative themselves. But it will but also suit students who are interested in the history of the 20th Century and the vast array technological, economic, political, and societal changes that occurred in during this time.
We will see works first hand by visiting Wellington and Lower Hutt Galleries, and by travelling to Napier to investigate the value of Art Deco architecture and design to the region.
Scholarship Art History is also an option for students who are interested in working toward this in addition to their Level three studies.
