AVI20 - Grade 10 Visual Arts

Description/Rationale

This course emphasizes learning through practice, building on what students know, and introducing them to new ideas, materials, and processes for artistic thinking and experimentation. Student learning will include the refined application of the elements and principles of design, incorporating the creative and design processes, and the relationship between form and content. Students will be challenged to make connections among art forms, personal expression, and aesthetics. Students will also focus on various disciplines within the art forms of crafts, design, and fine arts.

How This Course Supports the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations

The focus of this course is to frame the Visual Arts experience within the context of celebrating, respecting, and affirming the human experience. The students will reflect upon loving relationships, self-discovery, and spiritual growth. Students will become increasingly aware how powerful the Visual Arts are in our society and how individuals whose career is related to the visual arts can inspire thought-provoking images of a world view. Students will strive for excellence, originality, and integrity in their own artwork while supporting these qualities in the work of others. Essential life skills such as perseverance, discipline, commitment, and teamwork will be the binding characteristics of this course.
