Art Works — the first Canadian visual arts textbook in over 20 years — focuses on the issues, ideas, and themes that inform the art world today. Students will uncover trends, patterns, and approaches in art; understand connections, relationships, and causes and effects in art; and learn to recognize the factors that maintain, or change, the world of art.

Art Works is organized in a handbook-like format. Each topic is presented in discrete spreads of 10-14 pages to allow for easy reference and manageable, in-class reading. Topics are complemented by colourful, well-reproduced images of both professional and student artwork. Special emphasis is given to artwork by Canadian and contemporary artists.

  • Analysis Skill Building: Students are guided to develop their ability to assess and evaluate art from a variety of perspectives. These perspectives include reference to other disciplines like psychology, cultural anthropology, and the humanities.
  • Your Project: Each topic has a suggested project for students, followed by a series of prompts to assist them in exploring the various components of the creative process. That's 26 different project ideas for your class!
