十年级预科课程旨在帮助学生顺利进入IB 视觉艺术课程。教师不但要教会学生基本的艺术技能,使他们运用自己喜爱的艺术手段反映生活和表现生活,并创造性地表达、交流自己的情感和思想。














The aim of IB Diploma Art is to encourage students’ understanding of art. It is a thought-provoking course in which students develop analytical skills in  problem-solving and divergent thinking, while working towards technical proficiency and confidence as art-makers. Through developing emotive  intelligence and critical thinking skills, art students would become proficient in  expressing their point of view with confidence. 

Group 6 is an elective course and students may choose courses offered by  other groups in its place. 

艺术学科旨在让学生对艺术有了解,并让他们成为会深入思考、有自我反省 能力、有批判性思维的艺术从事者。通过培养感性思维和提高分析能力,学生们 将自信而有力地表达自己的观点。  第6 学科组的课程是选修课。 学生可在其他学科组中另选一门课程来代替本 学科。 


Visual Arts 视觉艺术 

The Visual Arts course builds upon student’s prior knowledge, and through  investigation and creation of arts, students enhance their research, study and  critical thinking skills as well as develop an individualized perspective. The  study of visual arts not only improves students’ art making skills, it also  enhances students’ understanding of a range of art forms, from traditional  forms embedded in local and wider communities, societies and cultures, to the  varied and divergent practices associated with new, emerging and  contemporary forms of visual language. 

视觉艺术课程,致力于使学生在原有的艺术基础上通过创作和研究积极探 索,同时开拓能力、学习技巧以及激发学生个人想法,学习视觉艺术不仅能提高 学生的艺术技巧,还能增加探索以及分析过去、现在和新兴艺术品质的水平。 


The Visual Arts syllabus makes a clear distinction between the course at SL  breadth and greater depth in the teaching and learning. The assessment tasks  require HL students to reflect on how their own work has been influenced by  exposure to other artists and allow them to experiment in greater depth with  additional art-making media, techniques and forms. HL students are  encouraged to produce a larger body of resolved works and to demonstrate a  deeper consideration of how their resolved works communicate with a  potential viewer. 

视觉艺术课程大纲对普通课程)和高级课程的区别有明确的阐述,对于高级 课程,无论教还是学,深度和广度方面都有额外的评定要求。评估工作要求选修 高级课程的学生思考他们自己的艺术品是怎样受到他们所研究的艺术家的影响, 并且深入地把更多的艺术手段、技巧和形式用于他们的实践当中。鼓励学生去创 作更广泛的艺术作品,并且能够阐述他们深层的思考:他们创作出的艺术品是如 何和观众进行交流的。
