Each year the International Baccalaureate (IB) visual arts diploma students present their artwork in an exhibition as the culmination of their two-year creative artistic exploration.
The IB Diploma Programme visual arts course encourages students to challenge their own creative and cultural expectations and boundaries. It is a thought-provoking course in which students develop analytical skills in problem-solving and divergent thinking, while working towards technical proficiency and confidence as art-makers.
The artwork addresses a variety of topics and issues that reflect the cultural experience and socio-political context of the world in which we live. Exploring a wide range of media and techniques across the two years, students have individually directed a cohesive body of work, including: painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, assemblage, and installation art.
Our students also investigate theoretical and conceptual approaches to making art through two years of sustained investigation, which adds a depth of understanding and cultural reflection not often seen in a traditional high school setting.
