This week, the Harrow Beijing Art Department enjoyed greatly the annual art exhibition this year entitled,'In the Name of Art'. It showcased the great art works by our GCSE and A Level students.
The exhibition themed 'In the Name of Art', displays the talents and creative thoughts of Harrow Beijing GCSE and A Level students in various forms of artistic creation, including painting, sculpture, installation art, video projections as well as many others.
'Our title for the exhibition is 'In the Name of Art'. This highlights the main facets of an art student: the ability to critically view and interpret their world and further develop it into personalized artworks. This requires a growth mindset and our students have worked hard in order to fulfil this key component of the GCSE and A Level programme. We want them to take this forward in their new endeavours and to top universities around the world. '
--Ms Letitia Evans-Minto
Upper School Head of Art
'The exhibition is very much about sharing and celebrating the incredible talent of these remarkable students, and enjoying and appreciating as art lovers the exceptionally fine work that they have produced. It is also a celebration of the incredibly strong and vibrant arts culture that exists and is continuing to grow at Harrow Beijing.'
--Mr Thomas Nolan
Head of Upper School
'Visual art is a key component of us as humans and our experience in the world. Art reflects the world for the time in which we live. As a result, it helps us understand our history, culture and lives as well as the experience of others through the pieces of work they have produced. This gives students an opportunity to express themselves, learn fine motor skills as well as presentation skills through the outcomes of their work.'
--Mr Aidan Bryan
Upper School Director of Studies
