Year 9 & 10 Art & Music
Year Nine and Ten Art and Music at KCS looks at exploring the Arts at Level 4, moving into Level 5 of the New Zealand Curriculum. We explore the 4 Strands of Art, Developing Practical Knowledge, Developing Ideas, Communicating and Interpreting, and Understanding the Arts in Context.
In Term 1, we look at painting techniques and processes with the end goal of a mural to go up on the school grounds as a celebration of our learning.
Term 2 has us exploring music through digital composing, using google apps to create our own original songs. We will also look at learning Guitar using modern worship songs as our foundation.
Term 3 will focus on performing the music we have been learning by being part of the band for our Whole School Worship Assemblies. Come along and see how great our tamariki are doing!
Term 4 shifts back to a visual arts focus with practical, hands-on activities such as sculpture creation using Harakeke and how this natural product can be processed to make high-quality art paper. We will also look at Tie-Dye and Christmas crafts to finish the year off.
