Throughout Term 2, the Art department has initiated our first student leadership groups. In Primary School, Ms. Seo and the “Little Picassos” have been busily designing and crafting for personal and whole school projects, including artist fact-files, logos and assembly displays. Meanwhile, in Senior School the new design company “Art Murmurs” have been honing their digital design skills, creating their brand and working to live briefs such as a sketchbook cover illustration for the Olympiad Art students and a t-shirt design for the Self- Defence ECA. After a very successful term, we’re very much looking forward to the students being able to make more decisions and steer the groups for themselves. Therefore, it gives me great pleasure in announcing that Ga-Eun Kim (Year 10) will be the manager of “Art Murmurs” next term. She will work with her team of designers to improve skills, work towards live briefs and set group constraints. As these groups become more established we look forward to even more collaboration across the schools and more leadership opportunities becoming available. Have a look at the new ‘Art Leadership Noticeboard’ outside the Art rooms for updates, examples of student work and announcements.
Congratulations to all of our “Little Picassos” and “Art Murmurs” on a hugely successful and rewarding term!
“Phenomenal,” “so, so impressive” and “incredible talent” were just some of the phrases used at the opening of the IB Visual Arts Exhibition on Tuesday evening. As a mandatory part of the IB Visual Arts course, the students were required to produce up to 11 artworks, write their own exhibition text and formulate a curatorial rationale. An incredible amount of work considering the other two complex and time-consuming components of the course.
The range of disciplines is vast, demonstrating skills in drawing, painting, sculpture, print-making, photography and installation. Equally as impressive is the array of concepts and contextual starting points. From gender inequality to internal struggles. And media censorship to the experience of loss.
Congratulations and thank you, to our IB Visual Artists. The dedication and commitment to their Art studies has certainly lead to an amazing finale!
Our Year 13 artists are- Ellis Ahn, Julie Blanchard, Marie Blanchard, Jennifer Choi, Emily Kim, Kyle Lee, Christian Lindsay, Lucy Oh and Lexie Xuan.
Also, a special thank you to Atikah Thane, Gabrielle Green, Victor Jong, Daniel Song, Ms. Mitford and Mr. Graham for providing a fabulous musical backdrop for the opening!
The exhibition will be open until the morning of Thursday 21st March.
