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.
