International Mindedness

IB is an International Baccalaureate literally.  So there is much interest is developing international learners and fostering the idea of approaching art on an international scale.  Lucky for you, you probably go to an International School – so you have some idea of how to relate to your ‘international world’.

International-mindedness goes beyond simply knowing about visual arts from around the world. It is about developing internationally minded artists and learners. 

In your art works/journal/thoughts,  give some thought to how your art affects or is effected/affected by internationalism.

In my classes, we always discuss our different opinons and observations of culture: where we come from (our students are international, so we have many different countries of origin), where we are (at the moment it is Shenzhen, China) and then other countries or religions that interest us.
