Online Photography & Film Studies Courses
Visual arts courses in photography focus on studio work and critical analysis of a wide range of photographic elements. Students apply the elements and principles of photography with increasing skill and creativity to produce art works that communicate emotions or comment on issues. They apply their skills using an array of media, including alternative media, and current technologies, to create art works for a variety of purposes.
Students create increasingly complex art works that integrate the fundamental components of design, known as elements. Students continue to explore design principles, organizing or arranging these principles in increasingly sophisticated ways to produce visual effects.
Students also develop an understanding of how art works reflect and affect the history, values, and beliefs of various societies and cultures. By experiencing a wide range of art works, including the rich heritage of Canadian art, students enhance their understanding and appreciation of the range and significance of artistic expression.
