AVI10 - Grade 9 Visual Arts

This course offers an overview of visual arts as a foundation for further study. Students will become familiar with the elements and principles of design and the expressive qualities of various materials through working with a range of materials, processes, techniques, and styles. They will learn and use methods of analysis and criticism and will study the characteristics of particular historical art periods, a selection of Canadian art and the art of other cultures. The focus of this course is to engage students and build their confidence and interest level in the visual arts through directed and meaningful studio activities. Approaches to new technologies as another tool in communicating visual ideas, career opportunities in the visual arts and the intrinsic value of the visual arts will be developed through study of the human experience, the environment and everyday life.

 

How This Course Supports the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations

The shared purpose of this course has been developed to respect the technical skills and proficiencies of the visual arts within a context of celebrating, respecting and affirming the human experience, and the environment as ‘gift’. As a Catholic faith community we acknowledge and affirm the uniqueness of each person and the diversity of cultures. We see the visual arts as an opportunity for students to reflect and grow through the process of self-discovery. Students will develop a state of readiness to witness love and respect God’s creation. The course will involve activities that focus on a sacramental cosmology where God’s presence is found in the ordinary, making it extraordinary. The course allows students to develop attitudes and values that exemplify a community-oriented sociology where human relationships function for the common good through perseverance, discipline, commitment and teamwork.
