Paragraph. Write about a work of art that is important to you. See application for details.

Important Considerations: In your collection of works, we are looking for original artwork, good drawing technique, evidence of creative thinking and a healthy imagination. For your own art works, do not hand-copy works from photos, magazines, or from other artists. All of your work must be original and be your own. Copies of cartoons and animated characters are not suitable for your portfolio.

The Visual Arts department offers an enriched program for students. Both creative thinking and technical art skills are developed at all levels, encouraging young art students to see their world more clearly, and to make a difference in that world. The study of Visual Arts includes art appreciation, with historical and contemporary art references that parallel our studio and exhibition activities. Our program features student visits to art galleries and museums, as well as visits by artists and art professionals who bring their experience to our classrooms.

Students from our program have gone on to study fine art, applied arts, and design at post-secondary institutions across Ontario, through Canada and beyond, but have also chosen to study in areas such as physics, aerospace engineering, biochemistry, psychology and the humanities.
