Art in Action
BISM had the wonderful opportunity to become involved in an art competition and exhibition hosted by the Benahavis Decorative and Fine Arts Society on the 4th of February, 2018.
The students were required to submit a piece of artwork that reflected one of six lecture topics; Shakespeare and the Globe, The Ballet Russes, Philip II of Spain, Pop Art, Leonardo Di Vinci and Spanish paintings that rocked the world. The winning competition entry would act as the cover image on the BDFAS annual lecture brochure, along with receiving 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes.
The BISM year seven class produced seven pieces of artwork which were displayed at the exhibition. The students researched the given topics and worked incredibly hard to produce detailed and colourful images. Pop Art and the Ballet Russes were two of the most popular topics. The students used acrylic and oil paints, along with watercolour palettes.
The exhibition was a one day event, showcasing the work of four international schools, professional artists and members of the society, along with demonstrations and workshops. Overall, the exhibition was a great success and the work that BISM produced were loved by all at the exhibition, especially the BDFAS judging panel.
Being some of the youngest students involved in the competition, the year 7 students created fantastic artwork, and ultimately showcased the incredible talent of all involved.
BISM will be involved in two upcoming art competitions; The 2018 COBIS Art competition in March and the BSF art competition. Both of which will span across the whole school!
