Art is one of the universal languages that all human beings understand and use to communicate.
Visual Arts Department was delighted to present this year's Primary School Art Exhibition. To foster the true innovation, STEAM mindset was embraced with the Arts. It was about facilitating learning experiences through integration of 'Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Design and Mathematics' to promote collaboration, enquiry-based learning and fun!
The exhibition aimed to display and acknowledge Primary School students’ accomplishment in visual arts and enable students to learn from each other by combining the mind of a scientist or technologist with that of an artist or a designer, resulting in a captivating expression of creativity. Diverse themes, vibrant colors, well-composed artworks displayed in an innovative manner, defined our PYP Art Exhibition infused with technology.
From drawing family members on I-Pads, designing transport systems, creating word clouds , using design studio for creating artefacts to creating simple machines using lego kits, robotic programming and designing 3D models, posters, quizzes, collages, students explored and applied the learning enthusiastically, across grades.
Creative expression by Pre-Nursery students was displayed through the painting skills whereas our budding artists from Nursery and Kindergarten exhibited drawing and colouring skills through their artworks. Grade 1 attracted the visitors with their Mexican Folk Art, posters, origami and clay artworks and Grade 2 fascinated all through Madhubani Folk Art, Mixed Media and Abstract Art. Grade 3 mesmerised everyone through their Batik artworks, ocean scene and portraits whereas Grade 4 involved the viewers with their mixed media sculptures, Pop Art, Body proportion and 2D/3D artworks. Grade 5 stole the show with their Canvas paintings along with their Tie and dye artworks and artefacts from ancient civilizations.
With the ability to portray a wide range of concepts, art and STEAM skills, from self-portraits to clay modelling, canvas painting to tie and dye and many more, their works ,this year reflected their creative thinking processes and the inspirations they have been exposed to throughout the year. As a CAS initiative, Grade 5 students’ artworks were put up on sale which was appreciated by all the visitors.
