Grade 8, Roots and Wings, Place and Space


The Art Department is inviting everybody to visit and see the first MYP Grade 8 assignment. This clay unit was taught by our Art teachers. A big thank you to Mrs. Heyl, our Art assistant, who very patiently hang all the pieces on our ‘display cube structure’.

Grade 8 created these hanging ‘bird’ sculptures based on aspects of their ‘roots’. They had to research folk arts or traditional crafts from their home country and consider how they could use specific elements to inform their own work. They also had to develop the skills of creating both hollow and solid clay forms to be able to realize their ideas. All written tasks and visual processes had to be presented in students’ MYP working journals.

Please come and visit Art Department wing to appreciate this beautiful installation!
