GRADE 11 AVI3M – Visual Arts, Grade 11, University/ College Preparation 1 CREDIT Would you like to develop your drawing and painting skills? Have you ever wondered how artists whose work you admire make things look so life-like? Have you said out loud or to yourself, “I could never do that”? Well, if you’ve ever uttered any of those words or thought any of those thoughts, then this course is a perfect fit for you! In this course you will have the opportunity to explore a range of 2D materials and methods, with an emphasis on representational drawing, oil painting, printmaking and figure drawing. You will focus on observational drawing and study painting techniques of master artists. You will learn to paint in oil on canvas and begin to draw from the figure, capturing gesture, mood and emotion. You will work with a visiting artist to learn modern intaglio methods creating a small series of unique prints. This course will also include an exciting art excursion to local and/or not-so-local destinations. As the year progresses you will assemble a portfolio of your strongest work, and we will collaborate to analyse your strengths and identify areas in need of improvement. We are confident you will leave this course ready for your senior year in Grade 12 Art, prepared to express your visual ideas and share your art with the community.

Have you ever wondered how jewelry or glass artists work? Have you visited the One of a Kind Craft Show and been inspired? AVI2O is now focused on developing your design skills through a variety of craft and fine art projects. For example, in this course you will have the opportunity to work with a silversmith to create a unique piece of jewelry, and you will learn how to shape and design with glass, using our glass fusing kiln to fabricate amazingly colourful and delicate glass objects. If you interested in fashion and fabric, this course will invite you to use your creativity to design and create pieces of wearable art. As well, you will improve your drawing, printmaking and painting skills through a series of sketchbook design projects that connect with the craft processes you are exploring.
