Toronto Catholic District School Board

Academics – Visual Arts

Art enriches life and offers a way of exploring one's creative and imaginative dimensions. Visual Arts at Bishop Allen explores the main disciplines of painting, printmaking, sculpture, graphic design and photography. These different mediums are presented to give students the opportunity to develop a range of expertise.

The study of the Elements of Design is important theory used as a basis for Grade 9 art. The Grade 10 program includes exploring the Principles of Design through sketch book assignments. In the senior grades the Elements and Principles of Design are extended in all studio art work. The History of Art is infused throughout all grades by visual representation, lectures and projects.

Our facility features three specially equipped classrooms. The hallways, library and foyer display cases proudly show our student's artwork. Many of our graduates are accepted annually at the Ontario College of Art and Design, and to other institutions throughout the province. From graphic design to professional photography, several have established careers in their specialized fields.
