Visual Arts at International High School
A series of visits by college representatives from the top art schools
in the country and several international schools provided students
with an opportunity to find out about different art programs, an
overview of careers to pursue within the arts, and an opportunity to
get one-on-one feedback on their portfolios. The visits consisted of
a presentation about the school followed by one-on-one portfolio
reviews. The one-on-one interview is also a great practice for the
IB Art exam where students have a 30-minute discussion with a
visiting examiner about the development of their portfolio over the
prior two years.
March 27: IB Art Show
IB visual art students displayed a selection of portfolio pieces that they produced over the past two years. Ranging
from photography and painting to sculpture and mixed media works, students’ projects highlighted diverse investigations including: transparency, art and politics, dust, rope, and human expansionism.
