Welcome to Grade 8 art!
Students will consider the role played by the visual arts in expressing personal and cultural identities; how the visual arts communicate ideas across culture and time; explore, express and communicate their ideas; become more effective learners, inquirers, and thinkers; develop self-confidence and self-awareness through the visual arts experience; to appreciate the visual arts, be inspired by them and to enjoy them.
A sampling of the broad topics we will cover will include:
Every unit will include an examination of past and present art work and theory, and will provide opportunities
for students to create/perform both individually and collaboratively. Both the Quebec Education Program Competencies and the IB Middle Years Programme Criteria will be covered and assessed throughout the year.
Please see the ABOUT section for a breakdown of the competencies.
