Wells recently celebrated with this year’s IB Visual Arts young artists in the fifth annual IB Visual Arts Exhibition, ‘Emerging Artists’. Essentially, the exhibition is the culmination of the students’ 2 year journey of creativity and craftsmanship in one of the IB DP courses.
In regards to the exhibition, there were 7 students, most of them IB candidates, who showcased their artwork in a variety of art-making forms which they have carefully selected as final pieces for the exhibition. The students exhibiting included Siddhi Bhora, Jiwon (Ellen) Jeong, Pooja Sachdev, Gordon Lau, Seung Eun Lee, Bo Wen Zhao, and James Lawthienchai from the Class of 2021.
As for the candidates, it is a feeling of accomplishment and fulfillment of their dreams and aspirations of becoming artists and embracing the Arts as not just a hobby, but a lifetime experience. There were a variety of interesting themes and concepts that were built upon from their personal and cultural experiences that reflected onto most of their artworks. We are proud and salute you all for making this event a success! Congratulations, Wells emerging artists!
On Monday, March 22, we held an opening day to honor the artists’ 2-years of hard work and invite members of the school community to enjoy a celebration of the arts. We had wonderful performances throughout the evening from our high school band, as well as our performing arts teachers. Overall, it was a wonderful showcase of our students’ artistic talents in a variety of forms.
The students also created virtual art exhibitions, which can be accessed through the following links:
