Creativity on Display at the YCIS IGCSE and IBDP Arts Exhibition
YCIS Chongqing was proud to host our first IGCSE and IBDP Arts Exhibition that provided an opportunity for our Year 11 and Year 13 students to showcase their outstanding learning journey completed over the past two years. Our students have developed their unique artistic skill set by exploring new techniques that were applied in the creation of each artwork, based on extensive research of topics and artists from different cultures and time periods.
The IBDP and IGCSE Visual Arts exhibition had a grand opening on Wednesday, March 13, attended by special guests, parents, students and staff. All attendees were mesmerized by the amazing artworks produced by our students as they sipped on bubbly and sampled the delicious canapés. Our IGCSE and IBDP Music students performed beautifully, supported by some of our younger musicians, creating an atmosphere of cultured elegance. The exhibition is the culmination of two years of hard work by our Year 11 IGCSE Art & Design and Year 13 IBDP Visual Arts students. Each student has grown as an artist over the two-year course and found their own voice in presenting their artwork.
The gallery remained open until March 29 and has been viewed by all our students and staff as well as a range of visiting guests. We offer our congratulations to all of our Year 11 and Year 13 Arts students as we are very proud of them all. Thank you to our creative team, led by our Art teacher Aliya Solis and Music teacher Jeffrey Vukovich, for leading our students through these challenging learning programmes, as well as creating such a special night on the 13th!
