Visual Arts Standard Level: AVI3M and AVI4M

This class will help students become acquainted with the forms and varieties of visual arts throughout time and across cultures, beyond traditional boundaries and to connect many areas of study and human experience. Artistic expression ranges from traditional forms to the varied practices associated with design, craft, electronic media, drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. Through the visual arts, people acquire understandings that are unique in human development. The visual arts allow students ways in which to interpret and comment critically on the human condition. The visual arts promote a sense of identity and provide students with the opportunity to develop a critical and intensely personal view of themselves in relation to the world.
