Kerikeri campus continues to offer Visual Arts Degree

This year the second and third years of NorthTec‘s valued Bachelor of Applied Arts (Visual) will be offered at the Kerikeri campus. Printmaking, painting clay, glass and art theory will continue to be taught at the campus. The tutors include Richard Parker, Mark Graver, Scott McFarlane, Jaymz Edmonds and Ali Ritchie.

NorthTec is currently accepting enrolments for its Arts programmes at the Kerikeri campus with classes due to start on February 17.

Last year a wider review of NorthTec’s arts programme saw some reduction in course offerings. However, community involvement during that review made it clear that NorthTec’s arts programmes are highly valued by students, graduates and the wider community in Kerikeri.

“It was important to acknowledge the strength of the submissions in response to the communities’ wish to maintain a presence of arts in the regions highlighting the on-going link between social and economic development and the provision of arts in these areas,” NorthTec Chief Executive, Paul Binney said following the review.

NorthTec aims to continue growing as an Arts Centre of Excellence at Kerikeri.

Programmes in Applied Arts (Visual Arts) will continue on a rotational basis in order to support the sustainability of the arts programmes.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
