According to AUT, Unitec and Auckland University, Painting, Sculpture, Print Making or Photography are absolutely essential for any tertiary courses in Design, Architecture, Landscape Architecture, or the Fine Arts. All universities consider students with an Art folio board as the top priority. Other folio subjects are helpful as a back-up. Students who have taken art have gone on to work as Artists, Digital and Creative (including Game) Designers, Photographers, Gallery curators, Chef´s and Restaurant owners and work in the Film industry (including Weta studios).
