Curriculum Outcomes

Grade 3-4 Curriculum

Component 3 APPRECIATION: Students will interpret artworks by examining their context and less
visible characteristics. Concepts:

A. Contextual information (geographical, historical, biographical, cultural) may be needed to


understand works of art.
B. Artistic style is largely the product of an age.
D. Our associations influence the way we experience a work of art.
E. Art is valued for different reasons; e.g., aesthetic, economic, symbolic, associative.
F. Art serves societal as well as personal needs.

Component 4 MAIN FORMS AND PROPORTIONS: Students will perfect forms and develop more
realistic treatments. Concepts :

A. Shapes can suggest movement or stability.


B. Many shapes are symmetrical.
C. Images can be portrayed in varying degrees of realism.
E. Landscapes can show middle ground, background and foreground.
F. Size variations among objects give the illusion of depth.

Component 10 (ii) SUBJECT MATTER: Students will develop themes based on:

A. Environments and places


B. Manufactured or human-made things

Component 10 (iii) MEDIA AND TECHNIQUES: Students will use media and techniques, with an
emphasis on mixing media and perfecting techniques in drawing and painting. Concepts:

A. Drawing

Continue to explore ways of using drawing materials.


Use drawing tools to make a variety of lines extending into character and directionpassive,
vertical, horizontal, diagonal, parallel.
Use drawing tools to make a variety of shapes and structures extending into symmetrical
and asymmetrical, skeletal, spiral, and into mass drawing (blocking in the main parts of a
composition).
Place more emphasis on direct observation as a basis for drawing.
Use drawing to add details, texture or to create pattern including drawing for high detail.
Make quick sketches.
Make drawings from a wide range of viewpoints.
Use drawing media to achieve gradations of tone or value in drawings.
Use simple methods to indicate depth or perspective; e.g., increase details in the
foreground, use lighter tones or values in the background, large objects in foreground.

B. Painting

Extend brush skills and further experimentation with the medium so as to achieve special
effects such as textures.
Continue to paint, using experimental methods including without a brush.
Be introduced to water colour.
Mix paints to show intensity of colour.
Continue to use paint in combination with other media and techniques.
Apply washes using water colour.
Use preliminary sketches as the basis for a painting, as well as painting directly.

Grade 5-6 Curriculum

Component 5 ACTIONS AND VIEWPOINTS: Students will refine methods and techniques for more
effortless image making. Concepts:

A. Different drawing techniques; e.g., seeing basic shapes, noticing the direction of forms,
plotting the position of extremities, are useful to depict actions.
E. Surface reflections, shading and shadows affect the viewpoints.

Component 9 CRAFTSMANSHIP: Students will perfect images through economical use of material
and efficiency of effort. Concepts:

B. Skill in getting the most from the least.

EXPRESSION Component 10 (ii) SUBJECT MATTER: Students will develop themes, with an emphasis
on global awareness, based on:

B. Environments and places


C. Manufactured or human-made things

MEDIA AND TECHNIQUES: Students will use media and techniques, with an emphasis on more
indirect complex procedures and effects in drawing, painting, print making, sculpture, fabric arts,
photography and technographic arts. Concepts:

A. Drawing
Continue to explore ways of using drawing materials.
Use drawing tools to make a variety of shapes and structures extending beyond
previous levels to exploring and enclosing forms, active and passive forms,
concave, convex forms, concentric and branching structures.
Use drawing to add details, textures, create pattern or suggest volume including
hatching and cross-hatching, shading, dotting.
Indicate perspective in drawings
B. Painting
Continue to strive for more sophistication in brush skills by using techniques learned
in earlier years.
Continue to paint, using experimental methods including without a brush.
Continue working with water colour.
Mix and use colour tones to achieve perspective.
Continue to use paint in combination with other media and techniques.
