At ISN Nice we believe that the visual arts are an integral part of everyday life, permeating all levels of human creativity, expression, communication and understanding.
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. In addition to exploring and comparing visual arts from different perspectives and in different contexts, students are expected to engage in, experiment with and critically reflect upon a wide range of contemporary practices and media. The course is designed for students who want to go on to study visual arts in higher education as well as for those who are seeking lifelong enrichment through visual arts.
On Tuesday 22nd of March our IB Visual Artists were able to have their final art exhibition beautifully displayed in the ISN reception. Two of our students who have been working remotely were also able to have their work screened in the theatre, a wonderful way to include them in this special event.
The exhibition counted for 40% of the final grade for IB Visual Arts and as such is an important component of the course. The exhibition was diverse as ever, showing works created in many different mediums including, drawing, painting, photography, 3D work, virtual experiences and even a sound installation.
Creative Arts Coordinator Nalinka Kalder says: "We would like to take this opportunity to thank our IB Visual Arts students for their hard work and dedication to make this a wonderful moment of celebration for our ISN school community."
