Welcome to the home page of Mrs. Williams-Day

Welcome to my workspace. I am looking forward to a fun semester of learning and working together. All my course content and assessment activities are located in my Moodle. Students may seek help in the morning, after school or during a flex-focus block during the week.

Some of the skills and values gained from the study of art and art history are listed below. For present purposes these can be subdivided into those that are intrinsic (undertaken for their own sake) and those that are extrinsic (externally motivated).

Intrinsic aptitudes include:

  • creativity and imagination;

  • self-expression and perception;

  • spatial awareness;

  • visual aptitude (perception of colour, tone, composition, size, etc.);

  • physical acuity (drawing, hand–eye coordination, etc.).

Some extrinsic aptitudes are:

  • developing powers of description and analysis;

  • extending intercultural awareness (icons, practices, symbols);

  • planning and executing art projects;

  • developing and supporting arguments and viewpoints;

  • collaborative peer working, self-directed learning.




Parent Tips

I encourage parents/guardians to be actively involved in your child's school life.  I believe when parents and teachers work together, children can be successful in their learning.

  • Please visit powerschool bi-weekly so that you are up to date with your child’s assignments, class schedule/timelines, attendance, and marks.
  • RVS Tech Support
  • Please visit your son or daughters Moodle course platform and/or art journal so that you are up to date with your child’s learning.  You will have to use their login information to access this information.

If you have any questions or concerns please email me or call me at 403-932-9005
