Art Forms

For IB Art, students are expected to work through a variety of mediums.  Usually, most students are more skilled at only a few techniques (not everyone is great at everything), so I advise my students to fulfill the art-making forms – and then focus the majority of your works in your strongest media.  Of course, I also love mixed media works – so those can work as well.

Specifically, for SL students, submitted works must be in AT LEAST TWO art-making forms, each from separate columns below.

For HL students, submitted works must be in AT LEAST THREE art-making forms, from a minimum of two columns below.
