VISUAL ARTS 8

Students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of different medium.  Each student will produce a minimum of 4 projects demonstrating their use of different medium and techniques learned.  Our hope is for students to realize they can do well in Art with effort.  All you need to do well is the desire to want to learn techniques and to understand that you get better with practice!

VISUAL ARTS 9

Students in this course are introduced to and explore a variety of different medium in both 2-D and 3-D art forms.  The course starts with a thorough introduction to drawing, painting and sculpture.  Focus is also an applicable techniques.  Printmaking, casting, clay work and some design components are also taught in this course.

The students are expected to work in a sketchbook at home following an outline that supports the elements of design that are learned in class.  The sketchbook is due at the end of the semester. A course enhancement fee may apply.

VISUAL ARTS – GENERAL 10 (VAG 10)

Art 9 and Art 10 are taught as a split class to provide students with the opportunity to take both courses.  There is a small amount of overlap in course context as students work on different assignments but use the same medium.  Students also have more flexibility in Art 10 to work on projects of their own choice.  The students are expected to work in a sketchbook at home demonstrating their understanding of the different elements of design and experimenting with different medium to be handed in at the end of the semester.  A course enhancement fee applies.

ART FOUNDATIONS 11

This is a comprehensive course designed to facilitate a broad range of experiences in 2-D and 3-D visual arts.  Students will be engaged in exploring a variety of art forms such as drawing, painting, pottery, photography, casting, design, digital imaging and printmaking.  We will review the elements of design and then concentrate on the principles of design.  When possible the class is exposed to Art in their world by visiting both local Art exhibits and the Gallery in Prince George, participate in contests, invite community Artists into our classroom to share their insight, knowledge and skills.  This also gives students the opportunity to further discuss different career choices.

Student work is regularly displayed throughout the school.  It is also published in our school newsletter and displayed on our website.  A course enhancement fee applies.

This course builds on skills learned in previous grades.

This course covers the same course content as Art Foundations 11 but students are expected to produce work of a higher standard and quality.  Students are also expected to work in a sketchbook outside of class to demonstrate their knowledge of techniques and medium.  The sketchbook is due at the end of the semester.  A course enhancement fee applies.
