Practice

Building on the content of ARTS 101, this Grade 11 course challenges students to think beyond the assignment and to develop their own art or design voice.  Previously introduced content in research, ideation, iteration, prototyping and presentation practices evolve into design thinking strategies through a series of project-based problems. Students will have some agency in choosing art, design or media projects as their focus.  All ArtOne coursework is paired with ArtOne ESL

Engagement

As with the content in PROS 101, this Grade 11 course is paired with ARTS 201.  Students in this courses are expected to autonomously manage the expansion of their professional network and organize events around areas that are related to their career interests.   Students are expected to manage basic social media platforms to share their profile and information, market their events and work, and communicate and share their ideas as the development of a thesis within networks.  All ArtOne coursework is paired with ArtOne ESL

Thought

Building on prior coursework in ARTH 201, this Grade 11 course examines contemporary art history and recent evolution in art theory and aesthetics as they apply to the student's artwork. With a focus on developing critical analysis skills, students will research the sources of the works that influence their own studio practice and develop essays and presentations that explain those influences.

Practice

This Grade 12 course is designed to provide the student a level of autonomy in choosing the direction of their art, design or media work. Faculty will  provide advice and guidance, but the student is to focus on the creation of original works that are sourced from their art history and art theory research, as well as their interest in a particular idea or concept they intend to develop with a capstone thesis project.  All ArtOne coursework is paired with ArtOne ESL

Engagement

This Grade 12 course is the capstone course for the Professional Practices series.  Students will work to finalize all elements of their college application and portfolio in SlideRoom, especially their portfolios' visual and written content, with particular focus on the development of a  cohesive presentation of their research in a thesis and thesis exhibition. Students are required to submit their application materials to one of the schools that features programs in line with their career interests. All ArtOne coursework is paired with ArtOne ESL

Thought

This Grade 12 course is a capstone experience that allows students to focus on the historical, aesthetic and theoretical influences on their work and develop lines of traditional and studio research to build a final portfolio that is strongly supported by a written thesis.  Maintaining and publishing a body of evidence of their research, students will be expected to demonstrate that they use iterative practices to develop both their research and studio activities.
