NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FROM ALL STUDENTS, PARENTS AND TEACHERS!
This magazine will replace the tri-weekly reports on this blog. The magazine will be available both digitally (as a PDF ) and in hard copy in small numbers.
Each month a new edition will come out, starting with October as volume 1.
We are in the middle of our second art project of the year, and for year 8, this means cubism. And it’s hard.
It’s proving quite challenging for them ( and both challenging and interesting for me from a research perspective) to observe and try to help them. The main challenge is to turn two faces, looking in different directions into one. And I’ve recently realized that it’s actually a creative problem solving problem, i.e. the need to extend the possibilities of what is allowed within the rules. This reminded me of a very interesting drawing question given to me by a very good Belgian friend. The solution lays in doing just that: stretching the boundaries, thinking, quite literally, outside of the box!
AND…while struggling with cubism some students produced some beautiful “mistakes”!
I have blogged about this already on my Facebook page, Think Like An ArtistLots of good stuff there too! Check it out please!
Welcome to the tri-weekly art happenings report at VCIS!
This concentrated “bit-o-this-bit-o-that” is meant to kill two birds with one stone: keep you updated more frequently, lessen my workload and, most exciting of all, be the baby steps towards what will be VCIS’ first Art Magazine! This mag will be available online and in printed form ( though in much more limited numbers!).
So, enough talking, here come the pics!
This is an artwork created by one of my brand new IGCSE year 10 students! She brought this in after one week of classes. If she can do this before we have even started, I can’t wait to see what she churns out during the next two years!
This is my Year 10 IGCSE first project of the year: a drawing incorporating perspective, figure and still-life skills. I’m impressed!
EP5 working AWESOMELY AVIDLY on their group houses!
EP3 decorating letters to their grandparents ( why not?!) with home-made stamps we made the week before. Their home room teacher was kind enough to explain some of the basics of writing an address in Thai. Grateful for that! The kids are so cute in their excitement at writing their first letter! One boy showed me his letter and it had no address on it, so I asked him about it and he proudly opened the letter to show me the postcard inside on which he had carefully written the address! He was so amazed when I told him that he could send the postcard as such!
And finally, here’s a pic of my extremely dedicated play props task force hard at work.
Till next time!
For their last project of the year, year 8 and 9 created animation and short films, respectively.
We will have a small film festival on the last day of school, 14th June, 2013. Parents should free to drop in!
Here is a selection of some of the films we will be showing:
