The Year 13 visual arts students had the opportunity to visit and exhibition by Angolan artist Joana Taya at the Mov’art gallery on the marginal.
As she is currently working on an exhibition in Portugal, the artist guided the students through her exhibition on Skype!
They got advice on how to curate an exhibition, as they will have to put their own up in March, and they also identified artworks that they could use for the comparative study component of the course.
No âmbito das disciplinas de Educação Visual e Português – Língua e Literatura, o ano 11 teve a oportunidade de ir a uma visita de estudo no Instituto Camões, no Centro Cultural Português.
Em ambas as disciplinas, os alunos exploraram o conceito de identidade e investigaram de que forma isso pode ser mostrado através de imagens e literatura.
O artista angolano Álvaro Macieira explicou aos alunos a sua arte, incluindo símbolos, propósitos, cores e técnicas usados. Para além disso, Macieira relacionou a sua arte à sua própria identidade e experiências pessoais.
Os alunos de Educação Visual do ano 12 também beneficiaram desta visita. A turma está agora a aplicar a inspiração do artista no desenvolvimento do seu próprio trabalho.
Year 11 visual arts and Portuguese language and literature students had the opportunity to go on an interdisciplinary field trip to the Instituto Camões at the Centro Cultural Português.
In both subject areas the students were exploring the concept of identity and inquiring into how that can be shown through visual images and literature.
The Angolan artist, Alvaro Macieira, guided the students through his artwork explaining the intentions of the symbols, colours and techniques used. He related it to his own identity and experiences.
The year 12 Diploma visual arts students also joined them as part of their course. The students are now applying this inspiration to the development of their work.

Artist: Naomi Grade: Year 11 Age 15 Title: Cultural Composition Media: Gouache paint
My intention with this artwork is to communicate my identity to the audience. Through this artwork I would like to show some of the things that I like doing such as playing the ukulele, painting and sport but I would also like to give some hints about my cultural background as I am from Madagascar but living in Angola. I was inspired by the style of the artist Michael Craig Martin.
Artist: Valdénia Grade: Year 13 Age 18 Title: Flourish Medium: Ink on paper, gouache, acrylic and sharpie marker
Flourish is based on my identity. The symbols are related to my values and beliefs. The images on the Angolan flag to represent freedom and the line drawing of Table Mountain to represent being born in South Africa. They are like tattoos on my skin. The patterns are from traditional Angolan pano cloth. The hair resembles my dreams, it flows and expands as it gets longer. I was inspired by artist Gabriel Moreno who focusses on the female body and uses lines to draw hair, fabric and patterns.
Congratulations to the Year 10 & 11 music students who performed so professionally as they shared their MYP curriculum learning. The audience were clearly impressed with the talent and enjoyed the atmosphere.
The Year 12 Diploma visual arts students went to an exhibition at Gallery Camoes at the Portuguese cultural centre. The artwork was created by Angolan artist Cristiano Mangovo. His artist friend Patricio Mawete showed us around and explained the artwork on display. The students learned a lot about the meaning behind the artworks and also how to curate an exhibition. This will help when they put their own exhibition up as part of their course!
The Year 7 students would like to share their learning in the arts with you on:-
Wednesday 31st May
They hope to see you there. Be prepared to join in!
Congratulations to our year 13 IBDP visual arts students on a highly successful opening evening of their exhibition.
It was great to see them confidently explain the intentions of their artworks with their families, teachers, peers and visitors.
