Our senior curriculum is designed to give students the chance to explore and experience the Visual
Arts disciplines of Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture and Art History, developing their strengths in the process. Our Visual Arts curriculum reinforces your fine motor skills, hones presentation skills, develops an eye for aesthetics, and encourages creative thinking to solve problems and seek solutions. Visual Arts embraces change and prepares you for a career in the creative world or beyond to craft your own career in an evolving workplace with the tools
to navigate digital change and the new jobs, industries and careers it creates. Students in this area regularly achieve to scholarship level. In 2019, a HGHS student achieved the prestigious Top Scholar in New Zealand for Photography.
