Under the guidance and expertise of Art teachers, students have learned to explore and apply a variety of media, materials, technologies, tools and techniques using the application of elements and principles of design.

Additional learning has been to prepare the art works for presentation to a broad community audience and to understand the effect of the Arts in everyday lives. These pieces demonstrate student learning of Ontario curriculum requirements.

Works/techniques on exhibit include the following:

  • Drawing: pencil, pencil crayon and ink
  • Printmaking: dry point prints, mono-prints, collagraphs and colour reduction lino block prints
  • Acrylic painting and mixed media
  • Sculpture
  • Photography

Eight pieces from each secondary school will be on display.
