AVI2O - Visual Art

open | 1 credit

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 also learn about the connections between works of art and their historical contexts. Course objectives may be achieved either through a comprehensive program or through a program focused on a particular art form (e.g., drawing, painting).

This compulsory course will examine Canada’s participation in global events and will trace its development as a country. It will focus on the events and personalities that have shaped our nation in the past hundred years.
