Art students in Year 10 are studying the theme of Natural and Man-made this half term. Recently they visited the Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre and Jim Thompson’s House to support their contextual and observational studies, and to help them develop their competition entries for the PMAC World Art Contest: Everyone Matters.
At the exhibition Traces and Traits by Pratuang Emjaroen students took inspiration for their own practice from their experience of the artwork. Emjaroen is a nationally acclaimed Thai artist who embraces his life and family narrative whilst reflecting on changes in Thai society, economics and politics.
Later at Jim Thompson's House students immersed themselves in the grounds, a fantastic example of nature harmonising with architecture. Students sketched and took photographs as visual research for their artistic studies. An beautiful start to the year for the Art department.
