Visual Arts 

All students take a Visual Arts introductory course in Year 9. In Year 10 students choose to take it as one of their option subjects. At NCEA level, a number or courses are offered: 

  • Level One - Visual Arts
  • Level Two - Design, Painting and Photography
  • Level Three - Design, Painting and Photography 

All Level Three Visual Arts courses are NZQA subject approved courses. At Makoura students have the option of taking all three Visual Arts courses to make up the required subjects they need for university entrance if they have a passion for this curriculum area. 

The Makoura Arts Faculty has been behind numerous community murals around the Wairarapa and holds annual student exhibitions. Student entrepreneurs within the college have started up their own Photography and Design small businesses and many students continue on to pursue an education in Art or Design at tertiary level.
