The Top Art Visual Arts is an exhibition of art folios of those students who achieved Excellence in NCEA Level 3 in 2009.

The exhibition is touring the country and will travel to approximately 30 schools, museums and galleries.

Top Art is a chance for this year's level 3 Visual Arts students to see first-hand a range of high-calibre art produced by their peers in each of the five Visual Arts contexts and to gain an idea of what they need to aim for in order to achieve Excellence themselves.

This year the exhibition includes information from the artists on the development of their work.
