• This course focuses on the refinement of students’ skills and knowledge in visual arts. Students will analyse art forms; use theories of art in analysing and producing art. They will produce a body of work demonstrating a personal approach that explore a wide range of subject matter, and will evaluate art works, providing grounds for their aesthetic judgments. Students will increase their understanding of stylistic changes in modern and contemporary Western art, Canadian (including Native Canadian) art, and art forms from various parts of the world.

    Neo-Classicism rejected concepts explored in the post-Renaissance (Mannerism, Baroque and Rococo) and returned to a design practice used by the Greeks, Romans and later by the artists of the Renaissance. Why would artists return to an older style of creating art? Support your arguments.
