Grade 9 Visual Art 10G
Since this is the first level at which art is an optional program, it is
therefore assumed the student has an interest in the subject area.
The course offers an accelerated program of skill development
including colour pointillism, pen and ink, perspective drawing, clay
figurines, and portraiture. These are introduced through a thematic
approach. Students are required to create a sketchbook/journal in
which they will explore different media and images and will be marked
on a regular basis. View the grade 9 art gallery.
Grade 10 Visual Art 20G
This course begins with a major still life project of pen and ink with a

and will marked on a regular basis. Art History is introduced at this level. View the grade 10 art gallery.
