Art Connections at the MOCA


Drawing inspiration and connecting with art…

Over 140 Secondary Visual Arts students, in both GCSE and IB courses, visited the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) to create art connections, drawing inspiration from professional artists to inspire their own work. These visits are an important part of the courses as they guide students through an understanding of various styles, mediums and messages. The MOCA gallery houses an expansive collection of both Thai and International Artwork across five floors. Students were given the opportunity to select works that interested them, sketching pieces, photographing the art and taking notes. These methods of interacting with art further develop students’ artistic observation skills and deeper understanding of the use of colour, texture, theme and composition to express their story. Students were impressed by the quality, size and ambition of the works they saw. The learning from these visits will go directly into their coursework portfolios and will provide ample inspiration for their own artworks.
