Fine and Performing Arts

Why take courses in Fine and Performing Arts?

The Visual Arts department at Greater Fort Erie focuses on a wide range of disciplines. To start, our department covers all grades from 9 to 12 in the traditional Visual Arts courses. 

Welcome to drama. We pride ourselves on bringing together a variety of different disciplines all under one roof. While we’re frequently associated with the performing arts, we’re also about teaching negotiation, team work and organization. As you explore the different activities students can enjoy, we think you’ll quickly see that drama is about a lot more than “acting”. We encourage students to learn commitment, passion and excellence.

Critical Areas of Learning

In grades 9 and 10, the fundamentals of art are covered with a focus on elements and principles of design, basic sculpting techniques, and intro to drawing and painting. For grade 11 and 12, the students will begin to explore their own unique style a little more, with the emphasis on developing and telling their own experiences through their artwork. 
Throughout these programs, art history elements are studied from many cultures and periods of history. Starting with the Paleolithic Era in Grade 9 and ending with today's modern art components that shape our societies today in Grades 12 and 11.
