“… but the sudden illumination – We had the experience but missed the meaning, And approach to the meaning restores the experience in a different form” The Four Quartets, T.S.Eliot

As the academic year draws to a close, so too does two years of progressive creative work for our Visual Arts students at BISS Pudong. Our IB and IGCSE Art students’ work will be celebrated at the upcoming Visual Arts Exhibition which opens to the public on May 18th.

Visual Arts qualifications require:

  • Taking inspiration from the work of others
  • Observing the world around us in micro and macro scale.
  • Understanding the contextual influences of any given time, on the development of new ideas and opinions
  • Believing in something when it does not yet exist
  • Playing and experimenting with materials, techniques and processes
  • Not knowing of what we are capable, but being prepared to try anyway
  • Having the courage and determination to persevere through personally challenging moments
  • Learning, developing and refining new skills
  • Creating something original that has the potential of both subjective and objective interpretation

The above list is just a start… the Visual Arts requires all of these things and so much more.

Methodologies and personal characteristics are evolved during the two-year programmes of study that are vitally important and transferable to all aspects of a successful future life and career.

It’s no wonder that American psychologist Benjamin Bloom (who introduced Bloom’s Taxonomy as a way of describing stages of learning) ranked ‘Creativity’ as the highest order of thinking.

Visual Arts is definitely not a ‘soft ’… but such a very worthwhile ‘option’.

Join us in a celebration of the achievements of ALL graduating Visual Arts students’ work and witness their spectacular creations at the 2015 Visual Arts Exhibition.
