Given the need for SHSM students to take a total of 4 senior arts courses, we have created a number of choices for the M level programs. There is the gr 11 documentary film/animation course, the comprehensive gr 11 art as well as a gr 11 Craft course (but it is an open level course, not an “M” level). In gr 12 there is the comprehensive gr 12 art course (often called the portfolio course) which requires a gr 11 prerequisite. Given the number of students that were re-taking the gr 12 art again in order to make more art, we began to offer the gr 12 drawing and painting course. Students must take the gr 12 comprehensive art course before taking the drawing and painting course which is an extension of the previous Grade12 art course.
