On Tuesday, October 3, the IB Visual Arts classes visited an exhibition of 3 renowned Colombian artists at Chulalongkorn University. Our school received an invitation from Madame Astrid Amaya, the wife of the ambassador of Colombia to witness and appreciate the works of artists from Colombia. “Winds of Peace” is an exhibition focused on celebrating the end of a war conflict in Colombia, a moment that impacted Colombia’s history. The recognition of this historic achievement has manifested itself in different ways, including a Nobel Peace Prize given the President of the Republic of Colombia, Dr. Juan Manuel Santos.
This was a great opportunity for our students to interview and learn from the artist, Mario Ayerbe, face-to-face. It helped to open doors for learning, inquiring, communicating and other attributes of a Visual Arts IBDP student.
