The IB Diploma Programme (DP) Visual Arts course is a two year program that develops the student’s analytical skills in problem-solving and divergent thinking.  It encourages students to develop their confidence as art makers, as well as challenge their own creative and cultural expectations and boundaries.  Students are expected to engage in, experiment with and critically reflect upon a wide range of contemporary practices and media. The course is designed for students who want to further develop their art skills and/or seek lifelong enrichment through visual arts.  DP visual art is designed to develop the student into an independent and resourceful thinker.

This rigorous course that promotes art analysis, questioning and development concludes in a final senior exhibition which is also the class’ final culminating assessment.   At Ogden International we celebrate the students’ two years of hard work by promoting the event and inviting the outside community to the exhibit.  These students have been fortunate enough to showcase their work in the public exhibiting in venues such as SIP coffeehouse, West Town Public Library and Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art.  This course and these students are truly amazing!
