If students do not have the prerequisite for a course, they may present a portfolio of previously produced work to have the prerequisite considered to be waived.
 
In all of the above courses students will have the opportunity to practice and learn via the creative process. It is our goal to challenge students to problem solve while creating, researching, and learning Visual Arts. Students will make connections through historical, traditional, and modern forms of art-making. Critical thinking and conceptual skills will be learned along with technical abilities and students will be able to express and communicate their research having a greater sense of identity, self-awareness, self-confidence, and sense of well-being. Within the classroom discussions regarding career paths will also take place – whether students are heading towards an arts based career (post-secondary education – portfolio preparation) or how to use their learned artistic skills to enhance their chosen career path.
 
Students have an opportunity to apply for an Art Achievement Award if they have successfully completed five Visual Arts courses within Richmond Hill High School. This award was designed to celebrate students who are passionate and committed to the arts.
Feel free to contact us or make arrangements to come for a visit.
