Botanical Forms

Take a look at one of our Year 10 IGCSE student’s art blog 🙂

Bogdana

I’m currently preparing for my upcoming art exam and the topic is “Botanical Forms“.

Once I went for a walk to take some pictures of the plants, but it wasn’t just because of the exam! I always liked flowers and exotic and nice plants. Unfortunately, there are no exotic plants in Denmark except for botanical garden (I also went there), but since now it is spring, everything starts to bloom and just wakes up. So many  beautiful trees and flower had waken up and I liked that.

Spring is my favorite season, and I hope you understand why.

Also, we went on a trip to the Botanical Garden in Copenhagen which was amazing, because the weather was so good and we had so much fun there!

The Houses Art Competition 2016

Some wonderful artwork to find new House emblems for the school

nggiprimaryart

Last Friday at NGG International School in Denmark,  there was a special assembly held to celebrate all the fabulous artworks that had been submitted to the “Houses Art Competition 2016.

There were a great many submissions, and a high standard of work from across the whole school. After much debate, four winning pieces were chosen from each year. Thereafter, four over all winners were chosen from both Primary and Secondary.

Four winning pieces were chosen from each year. The NGGI Houses are: Dragons (red), Horses (green), Wolves (yellow) and Wild Boars (blue). We then selected the best from both of our Primary and Secondary Schools.

Here are the four Primary winners:

Princess Caroline Mathilde?

With a pinch of imagination,  and if you screw your eyes up tightly enough, you might just see the profile of a young woman in the picture above.
This is the first big art and design project for year 10 IGCSE students. They’ve been asked to make atmospheric photographs of the site of a ruined palace – close to our international school in Hørsholm, Denmark.

Year 10

Over the past few weeks these talented students have been learning the fundamental principals behind sketching, mark marking, tone and creating accurate still life drawings.

All these skills, plus the students setting-up their own WordPress art blogs and arty Instagram accounts to showcase their fine art, will be featured from time to time on this blog.
Please ‘follow’ their progress with us through the next two years!

See how they grow!

Fine Art

A few weeks ago the final year Art and Design students at NGG International completed their penultimate art exam. This time the category was titled ‘Broad-Based,’ or perhaps the title of ‘Fine Art’ is easier for all of us to understand.
It’s been a great pleasure for myself and my colleagues to have worked closely with, and bring to fruition the ideas and creativity of these dedicated and very talented sixteen year old students. They’ll be a hard act to follow!
Happily, next year’s final students at NGG International are bursting with talent and enthusiasm too. For a preview of the class of 2016 – watch this space for their end of term exam projects in a few weeks time.

Below are some examples of our final 2015 students finished artworks,  some studio shots and some of the extensive research that was supplied as supporting studies. Each student selected one of ten questions from the exam paper, of the 100 marks the examiner’s will be looking for not only a consumate eight hour exam piece, but also thorough working and understanding of the concept in their supporting studies, an understanding of art history, a willingness to experiment in various materials, plus a fresh and clean idea and presentation. Our students worked mainly in gouche, watercolour, pencil crayon, photography and film making.

Enjoy

C2 Design-Based Assignment

The wonderfully diligent and talented C2 art and design students at NGG International School have completed the first half of their final art exam.

Here’s a glimpse of their design-based assignment. Next week we’ll showcase the more fine art project. Both assignments took several hardworking weeks to prepare the supporting studies, then eight hours spent working on the final piece.
