Grade 8 Art

Course Overview: The overarching goal of the visual arts curriculum is to support, nurture, and inspire the growth of every student as an artist and as an artful learner. The student is at the centre. Students own feelings, perceptions, ideas, and expressions matter immensely. It is critical that these are valued, explored, and celebrated within all art learning experiences. Every student is an artist, one whose growth and learning are best facilitated within rich, open-ended, hands-on artmaking experiences. Artistry is learned. All students have artistic potential. In developing the skills, understandings, and values identified within the visual arts learning outcomes, students convert their potential to reality. Young artists matter! As students become capable of perceiving, thinking, and acting within the various visual arts media, they journey into an important form of artistic literacy. In learning to communicate ideas, experiences, and feelings in ways that have no linguistic equivalent, students connect with the world and tap into their own creative capacities in new ways. As students learn to generate ideas, identify and solve artistic problems with imagination and flexibility, and communicate effectively in more ways, they journey toward becoming creative, artistically literate adults, the kinds of citizens who will be able to participate in society with sensitivity, imagination, inspiration, and creativity.

Essential Learning Areas Art Language and Tools Students demonstrate understanding of and facility with visual art elements, principles, and media. Creative Expression in Art Students individually and collaboratively generate, develop, and communicate ideas in creating visual art for a variety of purposes and audiences.

Plagiarism/Cheating Plagiarism means to take and use another persons ideas or writings as ones own. (Oxford English Dictionary) Cheating includes, but is not limited to, copying answers from another student, downloading assignments off the Internet and passing off old assignments as ones own. Any assignment found to be plagiarized whether in part or in total MUST BE REWRITTEN to demonstrate learning. Semester End Summative Assessment Plan Art is the interpretation of the artist. Students will be encouraged to show their individuality. They are expected to do their best and to put in all of their effort. Students are not expected to make things that are exactly like the model. This is duplicating and is in effect plagiarism. They need to make things their own. Being an individual is celebrated in art class. This does not mean that students just do something to get it done, they must put in effort and at times may be asked to redo to help improve a skill or concept.
