The first week of July started with discussing the importance of Process journal and its various formats. Students reflected and understood that care must be taken to ensure that the arts process journal is not just a diary of events, neither is it a formalized portfolio of best works, rather it is an evolving record of the artistic intentions, processes, accomplishments and journey of the student artist. There was also discussion on how to use it and what the contents are.
Discussion on the MYP Visual arts and its objectives were thoroughly enjoyed by the students. The geckos interacted well with all their curiosity while discussing the Key Concepts- Aesthetics, Change, Communication & Identity and how these key concepts provide a framework for arts. Every key concept was thoroughly discussed with the students. Inquiry into key concepts through the perspective of Global context will help students to make connection of their learning with the real world.
