Art: Year 10 Art and Photography trip to Jim Thompson’s House and BACC

Our young artists and photographers gathered visual and contextual information for their coursework.

On Thursday 4 October Year 10 GCSE art and photography students visited Jim Thompson’s house and gardens, as well as spending time viewing the exhibitions at Bangkok Art and Culture Center. The purpose of the trip was two-fold. Firstly students were asked to take photographs and make sketches at Jim Thompson’s house on the theme of ‘Natural and Manmade’, which is their new thematic unit. It was a beautiful, if hot, day and the gardens of the house made a perfect spot for our work. Secondly our group looked at the artwork on display at the Bangkok Art and Culture Center, building their understanding of how artists respond to themes and communicate ideas. There was a variety of work on show, including some highly conceptual pieces by emerging young Thai artists. Our students really made the most of their time out of school, even working through lunch breaks. They were a real credit to the school.

Artist of the Week

This week our ‘Artist of the Week’ award goes to Poon, an IB Visual Arts student in Year 12. Poon has been working through a number of processes, building skills and concepts for her ‘process portfolio’. On these sketchbook pages Poon transforms one photographic image, explores the concept of Readymade, and the work of the French artist Marcel Duchamp. Her skilful paintings and drawings are presented in a very engaging way and thoughtfully annotated.
