As part of the program, students studied artwork from a variety of museums, including The Rockwell, to draw inspiration for their own works of art. Many of the final artworks are inspired by objects in The Rockwell’s collection. Do you notice any collection connections? Students also kept detailed journals to write and develop their ideas and record their project research. 

Students learned about the behind-the-scenes process of creating an exhibition in a museum. Each student-curated and installed their solo artwork showcase. In addition to developing their creativity and skill, the program provides participants with hands-on experience and a closer look at arts professions.

The IB Diploma Programme encourages students to challenge their creative and cultural expectations and boundaries. It is a thought-provoking course in which students develop analytical skills in problem-solving and divergent thinking while working towards technical proficiency and gaining confidence as artmakers. 

The Rockwell is pleased to host this exhibition and support local students who want to pursue studying visual arts in higher education, as well as those who are seeking lifelong enrichment through visual arts.
