Reflecting the New Zealand Curriculum, coursework in all arts disciplines at all levels is structured around four inter-related strands:
  • Understanding the Arts in Context       
  • Developing Practical Knowledge in the arts
  • Developing Ideas in the arts                   
  • Communicating and Interpreting in the arts

Reflecting the Senior Secondary Arts Teaching and Learning Guide our vision is for young people who through the arts
  • participate in collaborative and individual endeavours that contribute to community well-being and personal identity
  • form and frame their identity through physical, imagined, and digital worlds
  • create and challenge ideas that reflect, communicate, and change views of the world
  • express and interpret ideas within creative, aesthetic, and technological frameworks, thereby building the confidence to take risks
  • learn how to think “outside the box”, engage with unexpected outcomes, and discover multiple solutions to challenging problems
  • develop greater consciousness and resilience for their futures
  • explore and celebrate artistic expressions of self, community, and culture
  • are empowered to deepen their notions of identity
  • specialise in the disciplines of dance, drama, music and sound arts, visual arts, and art history, or undertake study in multimedia and other new technologies
  • build on their experiences, and create, perform, and evaluate art works of increasing sophistication and complexity
  • learn to view their world from new perspectives
