Course description

The purpose of this course is to stimulate reflection on the knowledge and the experience of students within the world. The primary mode of reflecting and demonstrating their learning is through the fine arts at a college level. The course introduces the fundamentals of art composition and the various techniques adapted to a variety of media and architecture. In addition; the course references the history of art and how students can interpret knowledge of the world; both past and present; in understanding the artist's perspectives. The curriculum also includes components of music theory and how music can be used to communicate and interpret knowledge. This in-depth and international humanities curriculum provides students with the necessary vocabulary for a fine arts historical analysis and encourages the students to understand the significance of a work of art within their original historical; economic; mathematical and scientific contexts. This is a required course to earn the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.
