Für die Liebe zur Kunst

27 July 2017 | Culture

Am 6. Juli 2017 wurde die diesjährige Kunstausstellung mit Werken der Schüler der Oberstufe eröffnet. So konnte jeder seine Arbeiten präsentieren, die er über das Jahr gemalt hatte.
Die Schüler konnten zeigen, was sie geschaffen und gelernt hatten. Die Schüler folgen im Kunstunterricht dem Cambridge IGCSE Lehrplan, bei dem bestimmte Themen und Techniken vorgeschrieben sind. Klasse 8 malte zum Thema „Close-Up" Muster Entwürfe, doch auch verschiedene Stillleben. In Klasse 9 wurde das Thema „Menschen“ behandelt, zu dem die Schüler Zeichnungen, Gemälde und Leindrucke herstellen mussten. Außerdem haben sie Collagen zu „My School“ gemacht.
Klasse 10 bekam das Thema „Decay“, was für einige keine leichte Aufgabe war, da man geneigt ist, nur schöne Objekte als „Kunst“ zu bezeichnen. Auch Porträts wurden gezeichnet. Klasse 11 machte Studien zum Thema „Humanity vs Technology“. Die Ausstellungsbesucher waren begeistert.
Frau Ulrike Ulrich at the event said, “We are so used to, and pupils are constantly trained to communicate with words but ART shall speak without words!
So, I don’t want to give a speech here – however, I’d like to explain a few things about the subject ART as it is presented here at school:
I have to point out, that this subject ART has not much in common with the popular idea of relaxation, recreational activity – but is in contrast rather stressful for the students and really performance oriented! These pupils will do full examinations in this subject of their choice. As such it is of equal importance as e.g. Science or Afrikaans or Geography.
Following a strict syllabus from Cambridge, we deal mostly with painting and related media, but also consider other art forms, like photography, architecture, design and advertising art.
We spend about 1/3 of the learning time on research and history of art, but the emphasis in this subject is on practical problems and solutions, it must be carried through, as a craft. Besides being creative all the time, this requires a lot of effort from the art pupils and it is very time consuming. The students have to develop quite a bit of willpower to overcome their recurring frustrations in the process.
All in all, I must say, these are all wonderful students, I can teach in art!
They are young people who are capable of making great effort and mostly succeed in establishing their own opinion, take informed decisions and communicate their cause successfully.
