Transcript of IB Visual Arts

Welcome to IB Art
What is Art?
The impulse to make art is common for all cultures. From the earliest times, human beings have displayed a fundamental need to create and communicate personal and cultural meaning through visual forms.
Why are you sitting in this room?
What is it that makes you want to create art?
IB Art is a 24 month course where the aim is to challenge your pre-existing ideas about what art is, and what art can be! It will encourage you to explore our world and examine both cultures and art-forms that make Earth a diverse and unique place.
The process of designing and creating artworks
will require you to become critical about how you
see things and make you think conceptually about
the world in which you exist.
One of the main functions of art is to continually create new possibilities. Art should engage us and challenge traditional boundaries. As artists, we should be always seeking new ways to explore and express our ideas - to confront and engage those around us - to make people question what they see.

What is IB Art?
What is IB Art exactly?
HL and SL Visual Arts are essentially the same, except for one minor difference. The amount of work you have to submit at the end of grade 12.
There will be regular assessments at the end of each semester, but the ultimate goal at the end of the course is to present a BODY OF RESOLVED WORK in a student led exhibition. HLA (option A) students are generally expected to show 18 of their best works, and SLA students are expected to show 12. In order to reflect the time granted for students studying the different levels of the respective courses, the criteria are differentiated according to the level studied. We will examine the markband descriptors (Criteria) later.
What is the difference between Higher Level (HL) and Standard Level (SL)?
In the first few months we will spend much of our time building the skills that will help you to succeed in this subject. We will get to know what the foundations of the course are. If you develop a strong work ethic in this class early on, and continue to work hard, you are guaranteed to do well. This subject is not a difficult one. However, it does require you to be committed and creative in your approach.
How is this course structured?
Your IWB is your heart. This book is to be used everyday. In this book you should document your thoughts, dreams, any research you do, you can doodle in this book and plan your compositions. Any time you have an idea - you MUST document this in your IWB. The best art students will not go a single day without contributing something to this book.
Over the first few months you will be heavily focused on creating exciting pages for your IWB. Your goal is to make them both visually appealing and demonstrate a clear understanding and analysis of the artist(s) and technique(s) you're exploring.
Your IWB should contain a number of key elements. These elements should be your main focus:
1 -
Here you will examine artists (Past and Present) that relate to your own arts practice, You should include images of their work, together with your research about the artist themselves.
This is where you start to orgainse your research and put it into a artistic context. You can draw, paint, collage, glue, photograph, lino print, sculpt. Basically show visual representation of the artwork you're planning to create.
Or if your research is not about an artist
but specific objects or images, you can document your IWB like this:
Then you experiment with different techniques and media to try and compose the most interesting and dynamic images you can think of.
When you have completed these steps, you are then ready to start Stage 2, or otherwise called the production of the final work.
You may start to rethink what should and shouldn't be constituted as 'Art'. Hopefully, you will start to build your ideas on what materials and techniques we can use to create artworks too!
How are you assessed?
Assessment happens in 2 different ways. The assessment is the same for both HL and SL.

1. IWB
This component of your work is worth 40% of your final grade.
2 Studio Work
This component of your work is worth 60% of your final grade.
Pink - Shows how well you express the idea of 'culture' into your work. You must find some type of cultural connection in your art marking. Culture can be many things: Ethnic culture, Social culture (Tattoo, punk, Cosplay etc), Political and emotional culture.
Orange - Shows your development and exploration of a range of art making techniques that help you to build interesting work.
Yellow - Exploring a range of different ideas. Can you think critically about a range of different sub-categories on a central concept? E.g: If your concept is 'War', perhaps you look at the emotional effect of war, and then the physical side of fighting in war.
Turquoise - Are you investigating a variety of artists that have relevant connections to your 'concepts'?
Purple - How well you use art specific vocabulary.
Green - You must source every image and article you find.
Salmon - The final presentation of your artwork should be of the highest standard you're capable of. You also need to reflect in your IWB about your progress of the production of work.
Grey - There MUST be a clear link between the investigation workbook and your studio practice.
What do those colours mean?
Don't forget to
That's it. You are now ready to be the most awesome IB Art student ever.

But wait, there's one more thing.....
