The highly anticipated IB Arts and D+T Exhibition opened on 24th March to creative and innovative and designs. The D+T Exhibit featured fun and unusual designs for perfume bottles, lighting and many other items. Parents and students had a hard time keeping their hands off the designs. The IB Arts exhibit saw the cumulative work of students resulting in a wide variety of media and styles.
The interactive room by Maddie Dewse piqued numerous ideas, while Vanessa Blake’s oil varnish and oil on aluminium panels hearkened back to an earlier era. Thararak (Beem) Raktabutr’s carousel was fingerpainted with oils as she wanted to evoke childhood. Promise Cooper used a technique called cyanotype and used the sun to create a unique negative/positive image of a photo of flowers. Cokie Smith’s handmade models of Rattanakosin island in former times shows a city that has changed and yet remains familiar.
Although the range of subjects and mediums was vast, the diversity and creativity of the artists remained constant. Congratulations to our designers and artists on an amazing exhibition.
