This course enables students to develop their skills in producing and presenting art by introducing them to new ideas, materials, and processes for artistic exploration and experimentation. Students will apply the elements and principles of design when exploring the creative process. Students will use the critical analysis process to reflect on and interpret art within a personal, contemporary, and historical context. This course emphasizes the creation and performance of music at a level consistent with previous experience and is aimed at developing technique, sensitivity, and imagination. Students will develop musical literacy skills by using the creative and critical analysis processes in composition, performance, and a range of reflective and analytical activities. Students will develop an understanding of the conventions and elements of music and of safe practices related to music, and will develop a variety of skills transferable to other areas of their life. This course emphasizes the development of students’ technique and creative skills relating to the elements of dance and the tools of composition in a variety of performance situations. Students will identify responsible personal and interpersonal practices related to dance processes and production, and will apply technologies and techniques throughout the process of creation to develop artistic scope in the dance arts. This course provides opportunities for students to explore dramatic forms, conventions, and techniques. Students will explore a variety of dramatic sources from various cultures and representing a range of genres. Students will use the elements of drama in creating and communicating through dramatic works. Students will assume responsibility for decisions made in the creative and collaborative processes and will reflect on their experiences. Initially, students in the grade 11 program (TGP3M) learn about the technical aspects of the medium so they are able to creatively use aperture and shutter speed in their image making. Students then concentrate on compositions, combining their technical expertise with elements/principles of design to produce portfolio and homage submissions through classroom exercises and field trips. Students in the grade 12 program (TGP4M) build on their grade 11 experiences, and concentrate on using available light, manipulating outdoor light, and learning about artificial light in the studio. Students apply their knowledge in the studio to a culminating portrait assignment to further develop their portfolio for entrance into college/university programs.
