In the Newfoundland and Labrador Art curriculum, media components are found throughout the K-12 grades under the Key Stage Curriculum Outcomes in which students are expected to demonstrate critical awareness of and the value for the role of the arts in creating and reflecting culture and analyse the relationship between artistic intent and the expressive work. Within the individual courses media components are found in the strands Understanding and Connecting Contexts of Time, Place, and Community and Perception, Culture, Technology.
