Welcome to the Tintern Grammar 2020 IB Visual Art Virtual Exhibition. This exhibition celebrates the folio works created by this year’s Year 12 IB Diploma students –
Alice, Jeremy, Hannah, Angel, and Margaret.
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.
This year’s exhibition is available for you to enjoy at your own pace, in your own time, virtually. You are able to follow the guided tour, and explore each of the dedicated ‘rooms’ that feature each candidates work, or you can use the arrow key or click & drag function of the cursor and explore the pieces in any order you choose. You can zoom in closer to the works and view them individually, and read the artist statements regarding the works by simply clicking on the image. Each gallery room has the curatorial rationale by each artist that expresses their individual journey.
