Visual Arts and Media

St Mary's High School Woodstock

Students are able to concentrate their area of study providing a specific area of focus in their courses. Additional opportunities in training, workshops, reach ahead opportunities, co-op and links with community agencies are integrated with the students regular academic credit package. Life drawing, large scale dark room photography, ceramics, encaustic painting, illustration and animation are some of the areas where professional artists have been brought in to work with students over an extended period of time. This enriched learning experience provides a greater depth of experience than what can be offered through the regular classroom experience. Additionally fieldtrips to post secondary institutions, major art events and galleries have also been supported through this program.
