The course follows the global approach to the visual arts in which the process is equal to the product. Emphasis is placed on the history and the exploration and production of studio work, linking the core elements of art concepts, criticism and analysis, acquisition of technical and media skills, and the relationship of art to socio-cultural and historical contexts. Art activities integrate work in the studio with workbook research. Students maintain a research workbook detailing their plans, problems, successes, and critiques of studio work that they have produced. International Baccalaureate courses are open to any Granite Bay High School. Applicable IB exam and registration fees apply. ALL students enrolled in IB courses are required to complete the entire course and sit for the external exams in May.
