IB Visual Arts Year 1 students hard at work exploring the different types of media.
Course Description: The impulse to make art is common to all people. From earliest times, human beings have displayed a fundamental need to create, and to communicate personal and cultural meaning through art.
Visual arts continually open up new possibilities and challenge traditional boundaries. This is evident both in the way we make art and in the way we understand what artists from around the world do. Theory and practice in visual arts are dynamic and ever-changing, and connect many areas of study and human experience through individual and collaborative production and interpretation.
The Diploma Programme visual arts course enables students to engage in both practical exploration and artistic production, and in independent contextual, visual and critical investigation. The course is designed to enable students to study visual arts in higher education and also welcomes those students who seek life enrichment through visual arts.
