Year 7 Arts Sharing Evening

Thank you so much to the LIS community for supporting our year 7 arts sharing evening.
The students had prepared an evening full of learning and fun. They were excellent teachers and the families left with new skills in sock puppets, improvisation, T-shirt design and mono-printing.

Year 12 Visual Arts authentic learning in action

Yesterday the year 12 visual arts students visited an exhibition of artwork created by a former LIS employee, Bea Geraldo, in the HCTA.
The DP students were interested to learn about Geraldo’s training and pathway into art. They also asked about her techniques and materials used as well as finding out more about the contemporary Angolan art scene.
We are all going to follow #beatrizgeraldo on Instagram now!
The exhibition is on at the HCTA hotel in Talatona until 30th June.

Diploma Visual Art visit to Galeria Banco Economico

The year 12 Diploma visual arts students recently went on a field trip to view an exhibition in the Galeria Banco Economico in Luanda. This included painting, sculpture, printmaking and photography from contemporary Angolan artists. The students were fortunate enough to be guided through the artworks by the curator of the exhibition.They will then apply their learning to their own exhibition and comparative study components of the course.

Silent Art Auction

You are invited to the opening evening event of the Silent Art Auction on Monday 7 May from 6:00-7:30pm on the upper floor of building 7.  Students from years 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10 are excited to show off the collaborative artwork they have created for the auction as well as the artwork they have completed this year in visual arts class.

  • Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Project: This project aims to rescue chimpanzees being held in captivity. The project provides immediate care for the chimpanzees as w organizes and funds the transportation and integration of the chimpanzees into rehabilitation sanctuaries in neighboring countries.

Bidding instructions: Beginning on the opening evening of the auction, you will be able to bid on the artwork of your choice by filling out a piece of paper indicating your bid amount. You will place the paper into a box with the corresponding artwork’s picture on it. The winner of each artwork is the person who bids the highest. Only the winner will pay.

The artwork will continue to be on display from May 7-11 in B7, where you will be able to place your bids until Thursday, May 11 at 3pm. The winner of each canvas will be contacted on Monday, May 14 via email with instructions of how to pay and how to collect the artwork.
