The Art program at Sir John Thompson encourages students to think and communicate more creatively. Students can utilize the skills and techniques learned in Art to enhance projects, assignments and presentations in other classes.
In the grade 7 program the students experiment with the elements of art and design and are introduced to 2 and 3 dimensional compositions.
The grade 8 and 9 students expand on these skills creating compositions in two and three dimensions, investigating the effects of controlling form, color and space in response to selected visual problems. They use a variety of media to complete projects such as sculptures, relief compositions, paintings and drawings and are involved in research in order to study the history of art and the compositions of individual artists.
