Celebrating Creativity at the IB Art Exhibition

Recently, the Belle Époque art studio at Leysin American School was filled with vibrant colors, fantastic designs, and a creative atmosphere as the grade 12 students in the IB Visual Art program showcased their projects in the annual IB Art Exhibition. This event, a culmination of months of hard work and dedication, provided a platform for these talented artists to exhibit and celebrate their creations with the LAS community.

At LAS, the arts are an integral part of student education. Allowing students to express themselves creatively promotes mental health and develops emotional intelligence, self-expression, and individual or cultural identity. Our students never cease to amaze us with their incredible insights and expressions, whether that’s in the art studio, on stage, or at a music recital. We always encourage our students to get involved through lessons or our wide range of extracurricular activities.

The IB Art Exhibition was not only an opportunity for the student artists to display their artwork but also a crucial component of their IB Visual Art course assessment. The support and engagement of the audience played a vital role in this assessment, highlighting the importance of community involvement in developing artistic talent. Through the IB Visual Art program, students are challenged to delve deep into their creative processes, develop their artistic vision, and produce cohesive bodies of work that reflect their unique perspectives and talents. The program includes both Higher-Level (HL) and Standard-Level (SL) courses, requiring students to produce a number of finished pieces that reflect their theme.

LAS provides a rich and supportive arts program for students of all artistic interests and backgrounds. Our arts program and facilities guide student talent and provide the resources students need to pursue their creative passions. We encourage our students to express themselves creatively, and the arts open up a world of possibilities in which they can unleash their creative potential.

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the IB Art Exhibition! Visitors had the opportunity to engage with the students, learn about their inspirations and techniques, and gain a deeper understanding of the artistic process. The event was an excellent way for the LAS community to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our budding artists.
