IB Art (HL & SL)

 

IB Visual Arts HL

 

The IB Visual Arts HL course is a two-year course that challenges a student’s cultural awareness, analytical problem-solving, creative thinking and application, while expanding and building upon their technical skills. The students will be exploring and comparing different artists from various cultural backgrounds and time periods through comparative studies creating 13-20 screens.

 

They will also explore 3 different medias and various practices experimenting, creating and reflecting upon their work through a process portfolio creating 13-25 screens. 8-11 works that demonstrate a thematic concentration will be displayed through their own curative practices which will require them to be selective through self-reflection, well written curatorial rationales, and awareness to how viewers will engage with their themed work. The course is designed to help foster a foundation for further studies at the college level or for those seeking lifelong enrichment through visual arts.

 

Prerequisite: One year of any visual art class (Art 1, 3D 1 or Digital Photo 1.)

It is recommended that students enroll in an art class the year prior to enrolling in an IB Art class.
