HS art students engage in dialogue about artistic expression

This trip was planned for all the 27 students in IBHL/SL 11th and 12th grade visual art classes to visit the Vanhaerent’s art collection in Brussels and MIMA. The aim of this trip, and others, is to encourage students to discover and access the rich artistic and cultural resources from around the world that they can encounter in Brussels, and to assist them to develop an understanding of Art through direct investigation of primary sources. By engaging them in a critical dialogue about artistic expression in different historical and contemporary contexts, relevant to their own developing research and studio practice, it is hoped they will be encouraged to develop their own independent trips in future.
