L3 Art History

L3ARTH
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr D. Henderson

Late Renaissance to Mannerism (1470-1540’s) Art History at L3 is a natural progression for those students who have studied it at L2, although not a pre-requisite. It is academic in nature and there is a good deal of wider reading, writing, viewing and discussion of Artworks. 

Students study a time period in Italy which looks at the rebirth of Art and ideas of the classical world of Greece and Rome. Students will critically analyse style, meaning and context of artworks including paintings, sculpture and architecture. The knowledge and skills gained can be applied to tertiary study and careers, particularly in the fields of Art, Architecture and Design.

Internal Standards: There are three assignments of very different natures all worth 4 credits each. These are allocated as one per term, and reflect different research and thinking skills.

External Standards: One three-hours examination, encompassing:
4 credits for Meaning
4 credits for Style
4 credits for Context
All or some of these assessments can be taken. 

Scholarship: Scholarship is offered for students who complete work at ‘Merit’ level or above. Additional group tutorials will be offered by specialist staff from Term 3.


Course Costs

All Course work books are provided. Paper, ring binder and pen required.


Required Prior Learning

Must have achieved L2 English. It is not essential to have taken a L2 Art subject, but it could prove insightful.
