Category Visual Arts & Contemporary Craft

Grades 5-12 (full-day)

Curriculum Connections Visual Arts, Social Studies, French

Discover why artists of the past and present are inspired by the outdoors. Harbourfront Centre’s site allows for opportunities to capture a diverse landscape. Some students may look to the lake, while others may be drawn towards the built environment to create their landscape painting.

Your students will be inspired by historic and contemporary works of art, explore drawing and painting techniques, and gain a deeper understanding of the media.

Key Inquiry Question: How can your surroundings influence artistic expression?

By the end of the programme, students will:

  • Examine the history of the discipline
  • Recognize and experiment with the conventions, tools, materials and techniques of acrylic painting
  • Produce an acrylic landscape using Harbourfront Centre’s site as inspiration
