The general aim of the tenth grade curriculum is one that prepares the students for the
IB Diploma level art course by familiarizing them with the processes of planning,
researching and experimenting in preparation for a studio artwork. It also aims to
familiarize students with the common expectations regarding the development of a
thematic approach to art. The emphasis on the sketchbook (Investigation Workbook)
is paramount, as the student needs to exit the Foundations Art course with a working
knowledge of the basics of keeping a daily art journal and using it as a primary idea-
development tool for their studio work at the IB Diploma level. The grade 10
Foundations Art course typically culminates in a summer assignment (between grade
10 and 11) in which students are expected to use their acquired knowledge of the role
of the sketchbook to devise their first studio work based upon a well-researched and
well-conceived theme documented in their book.
