This year, four exceptional artists at Regents International School Pattaya are exhibiting their portfolios as part of the IB Diploma course. The gallery of work demonstrates that the students have enjoyed a highly creative two years, filled with personal growth and discovery.
Art Teacher Katherine Millar commented, “The course is excellent preparation for creative art-related university degrees, in fact much of the course overlaps with the traditional one year Foundation Course that all students doing art university degrees in the UK are required to complete.
IB Student applies wire to his sculpture of two conjoined limbs, ‘Be-reached’.
“I have no doubt that the strong cultural mix of the Regents’ students, their experiences on the IB Diploma course and involvement in the school’s Global Citizenship programme, feeds a richness of experience into their studio pieces. This year for example, one student wrote her extended essay on calligraphy and has also brought that interest of Korean calligraphy into one of her studio works.
“I feel very passionately that it is the excellent depth of academic enquiry into art and design practices that allows the students to truly excel when developing their own ideas here at Regents.”
Art teacher Miss Millar admires the jigsaw tower ‘Miniature Puzzle Taipei 101’.
IB Student adds the finishing touches to her mixed media collage, ‘The Vision’.
‘Learned Desperation’, a mixed media canvas based on the theme of Abandonment
‘Combination’, Acrylic on Canvas, is a photo-realistic painting based on the work of David Hockney’s photo montages. It investigates the organisation of images.
