The H1 & H2 syllabi are designed to engage students in activities of observing and recording, analyzing and exploring as well as critical appraisal in the study of Art. This is observed in the behavioral domains of perceiving, making and appreciating. Students will form for themselves, bodies of knowledge about Art through critical and philosophical investigations.
The H2 syllabus also allows students to engage in the use of different art media, tools and techniques in the making of Art to communicate their intents.
ART H1 (8879) – Study of Visual Art (SOVA)
SOVA seeks to develop students’ visual literacy and higher order thinking skills through art criticism. Through the acquisition of art criticism skills, students will be able to analyze and value any artwork even without prior contextual knowledge of the work. We can advance the artistic and aesthetic maturity of our students.
ART H2 (9750) – Studio Practice & SOVA
Studio Practice forms a critical component for the learning of Art. It lays the foundation for any form of artistic creation. This focuses on the dynamic process of art making. From the production skills acquired from working with an individually chosen medium, students develop introspective, research, problem-solving, technical skills as well as creativity.
SOVA is included in H2 to complement the Studio Practice component.
