Studied students stupefy! Students learn about alliteration by listening to an alliterative read-aloud and apply the knowledge they gain to the creation of their own poem and illustration.
Students will observe dance movements depicted in a drawing and a painting. Partners will use simple lines to draw their partner's movements and paint dance costumes on the figures using various brushstrokes. Students will write a persuasive speech to the school superintendent explaining why they believe dance should be a regular part of the curriculum. They will then model dance movements for classmates in teams of four and recite their persuasive speech to the class.
Students will analyze and describe a painting depicting a family. They will discuss similarities and differences between the setting of the painting and where they live. Then students will create a sculpture of their family doing an activity together and also create a diorama of a room in their home.

We know that the everyday lives of our students are inundated with media. This often-overwhelming menu of media-rich entrées gets served up at a rate that seems to value overconsumption more than proper and meaningful digestion. As educators, we may be left wondering, how do we beef up (or tofu up , if you prefer) our students’ appetites for media-literacy so that they can skillfully navigate our ever-changing, media-saturated landscape?
This instructional program prepares students to use artistic and technological foundations to create animated presentations for industry and entertainment. Students will develop basic drawing and design skills, learn the fundamentals and physics movement, the concept of communication to a given audience, and techniques for self-expression through a variety of animated formats. They will explore the careers and requisite skills required by animators in both entertainment and the business world.

Art Lessons for Teachers

For the 2014/2015 school year at KCS, all the Arts Ed 9 outcomes were intergraded into all the grade 9 courses. I was given 4 outcomes to cover in my Science 9 course. My ongoing goal in all my science classes is to relate science to the student’s lives and the real world as much as possible. Having to cover the specific arts outcome gave me the opportunity to teach my students about the science behind ceramics, an art form that relies heavily on chemistry, specifically the properties of the elements from the periodic table. I utilized the expertise of Devon Coles, who runs the local art gallery, the Garden Gallery, in Kindersley where he produces ceramics, to give the students insight into his ceramics process and the chemistry involved. Students then created their own ceramics pieces at the art gallery and used their knowledge of the properties of elements from the periodic table to predict which glaze Devon put on their piece before it was cured in the kiln.
