Grade 7 Visual Art

In Grade 7 students continue to build their skill, knowledge and confidence in visual art. In art studio, students increase their creative problem solving skills through drawing, making prints, creating collages and painting. Students learn to appreciate the aesthetic qualities of art by looking carefully and thoughtfully at exemplary works. In art history, students explore culture-shaping movements like the Neolithic Revolution, the Industrial Revolution and the Information Age. Cross-curricular integration is achieved when students research and create Elizabethan puppets in conjunction with their study of Shakespeare in English.
