Road safety design competition

Jonah Filipo, 10 HS,  recently won first place in a road safety design competition run by the Auckland City Council.

The theme was ‘future streets- to make local streets safer and to increase levels of walking and cycling’.

The students in his year 10 Art class were asked to create a logo that could be used for all promotional material and signage in the initiative.  NumiaToomata was also a very strong contender.

His clever design brought traditional pattern elements together with an image of responsible pedestrian crossing use.



“Student Voice”

These images are from the 2012 level 2 external portfolios. The students are arranging and reinterpreting images of themselves in a school based environment. They were primarily concerned with developing related sets of ideas through the symbolic positioning and placement of figures in a recognizable space. Each student has responded to source material in a different way, using a variety of contemporary artist models to help them with their expression. Each painting is a personal interpretation of reality, reflecting the intentions of the New Zealand Curriculum in this the development of the “student voice”. All artworks are done with water based paint on paper
