Visual Arts SL (new in 2013)
Visual Arts SL enables students to
learn about themselves and others through individual and collaborative
engagement with the visual arts. Students will be introduced to art
concepts, criticism and analysis, acquisition of studio technical and
media skills, and relation of art to sociocultural and historical
contexts. This course is for the specialist visual arts student with
creative and imaginative abilities, who may pursue the visual arts at
university or college level. It consists of two compulsory parts: studio
work—the practical exploration and artistic production; and research
workbooks—independent critical research and analysis, visual and
written, in more than one culture.
