  1. Hey there, This is my first year of IBDP, and I've chosen Visual Arts at an SL level. We're already in our 3rd month of the course but our teacher is bit of a snob and frankly, I can't figure out what to do with this subject. I'm supposed to come up with a theme for all my SL artworks by monday, and based on that theme prepare a draft sketch of a installation we are supposed to make before December. I've thought about some theme ideas and this is what I could come up with: Desolation: How alienated and desolated we feel from our surroundings. Out of place: Being differe
  2. Hey everyone I hope someone can help me and explain to me how i am supposed to evaluate the cultural significance of an artwork, i am working on my Comparative Study in Visual arts right now and i am so confused So if someone could help me and tell me if there are any specific guidelines for that or tell me how they've done it i'd be so thankful! So thanks in advance
  3. This is quite a long story but I'm going to make it as short as possible. So when I first got my EE form, I put English Literature as my subject and put my two suggested supervisors who are both familiar with the subject. However, I was given a completely different supervisor who bases her teaching on VA. Though she told me I can focus on any subject like History, English or VA since she majors on them on the first meeting I had with her. Moreover, the DP Coordinator a few months ago, asked what subject my EE was and I said English whilst I had already submitted a VA EE. I don't really kn
  4. Hi Guys, I chose to write an essay on, 'To what degree did the acculturation of European standards into the arts of the Yoruba people during British colonial rule destroy their indigenous visual culture depicted through their sculptures?'. First of all, I am not sure on whether this is a valid example to focus on essay on. My supervisor who is also an examiner said it was, but honestly I'm not sure. what do you guys think? Also is anyone willing to proof read my essay and crosscheck to see whether everything is in check because I kind of do not trust my feed up and I really
  5. Is it possible for me to do my ee on illustration? If so, what areas of illustration should I focus my question on? I am currently thinking of doing color-related or like the techniques illustrators used to create a certain effect that sort of topics.
  6. So, I am planning on doing my EE in Art and I was thinking of doing the topic "How are American and Japanese art influenced by one another and how are they different?", or something along those lines. Is this too vague? Should I specify a specific area of art? Can I even use this topic? Any feedback and suggestions would be awesome. Also, my 2,000 words checkpoint is next week and I haven't started yet, so please help ASAP!

    Hi guys. I made this document about how to write a Comparative Study for VA, with the specifications for HL and SL. I based it on information I found everywhere online and the Pearson book for VA. Enjoy!
  8. hi, im only in ib visual arts and i was wondering if i wont be allowed to graduate if i don't pass the exam, regardless of my course grade. my grades were fine last semester (average in the 90s) but im almost sure ill fail the exam because of my vaj pages. my studies in college will have nothing to do with art, so that's not a problem either.
  9. Hey Guys, I'm quite stuck on how to write my introduction for the extended essay. The thing is that now, since we don't need the abstract, I'm wondering what words I can use to link or relate the methods and content that will be discussed in the essay with the research question. My art supervisor somehow cannot access the think IB web therefore I don't have access to any guide or sample EE. Does anyone know or have a link to a recent arts Extended essay? Thnx Kind Regards AZ
  10. Hi! I'm new to the website but I'm currently an IB1 doing Visual Arts HL. So far everything's going great but I'm wondering if there is a criteria guide that defines final artworks that one creates? I usually get 7s or 6s on my pieces, but I recently got lower this time and I don't know why. I wouldn't expect there to be such a guide, as art essentially has no limits, but I just want to know if there are certain points that we have to achieve for a good/suitable artwork, unless its all really up to the teacher's opinion with no explanation. Thank you in advance for any help at all! Appre
  11. Hey everyone, I've noticed that there is a lack of Theater Arts students on this website and I struggle to find help and advice for my Theater class. Today I decided to put that behind me considering I have been through a lot during my theater journey and decided it would be easier for me to just create a forum for the new Theater Arts students from 2016 onward. This forum will be a discussion point for everything Theater based from the Nov 2016 session and for the years to come (unless they change the syllabus again). Please feel free to ask me any questions that might concern you
  12. Im having a hard time deciding on my theme for arts. I was thinking witchcraft but I cannot think of many pieces I could make related to it except from tarot cards. Anyone got any ideas for pieces or ideas for other themes?
  13. hi! i am writing an EE under the visual arts guidelines, with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and it's author, hirohiko araki, as my main focus. i need help coming up with good research questions. i love araki and his work and i would really love to write about it, particularly his most well known series, jojo's bizarre adventure, but i am having a bit of an issue on where to start. i am currently a junior, so i have a lot of time, but i would like to start considering these things right now. i would much prefer if you helped me while having at least
  14. Hi guys, I'm in my 1st year of DP and our EE coordinator told us to start writing up a proposal for our EE. Now I have a slight dilemma with my subject choices: I really want to do either History or Visual Arts, however, there is an issue with both of them. History: I want to pursue a career in History and I was going to take it up as an IB subject but since we do not have a DP History teacher, I did not - would it be wise to do an EE in a subject that it is not a subject of mine and has a MYP supervisor? I would like to add, though, that I really do like History. Visual Arts:
  15. I am a 2017 May graduates and I did quite well, however, my art grade was not what I wanted or needed to get into the university that I wanted. I have spoken to my DP co-ordinator (who I don't trust in the slightest because she recently became the co-ordinator and was my teacher before that. Imagine the worst kind of teacher and thats only half the story). She has now told me that she's pretty sure that I won't be able to re-do the visual arts course and that she can't send in the different components either, even though we documented absolutely everything! So my question is: is she right?? an
  16. Hello, I'm planning on some art pieces and I want to use some old childhood photos in a collage type thing. Would I be able to do that, because they wouldn't have been taken by me or during the 2-year program? Also, I'm wondering if it's ok if I use reference photos from my friends that they've taken themselves. Thanks!
  17. Hey everyone! I'm a pre-IB student where I am going to determine what to study in the next 2 years. I want to be an architect.( I also think of Law and Psychology but not that serious so my first choice is architecture) My final choices: ENG HL TURKISH HL ??? HL MATH SL VISUAL ARTS SL TITC SL (Turkey in the 20th century) I have to take one more sl and hl but I can't decide. I can't take VA HL since my art teacher said you're not that good at it and also I have no courage to take Physics HL If I take Bio HL or Chemistry HL would it be a problem for me to be an architect?
  18. Hello, I was wondering how does the IB check for plagiarism in the Visual Arts course (for the visual content, like photos and images). I take Visual Arts HL Photography, and I am just worried that some of my content might show up online because I tend to publish stuff on Tumblr and such. My friends reblog my content and it's a heavy chain of reblog-repost action. Do you think I'll fail my diploma? It has been getting to me lately. If caught, they do contact you first, correct? I mean, you must be given a chance to explain yourself after all. Someone help out a sister

  20. Hi, so I take Visual Arts HL (now Y13), and am preparing my artworks for exhibition 2017. Would I be in any sort of trouble if I published photographs, sketches, etc. onto the internet? For example, could Turn-it-in find it and penalise me (based on the same photographs, writing, etc.) even if the work was completely mine anyway? I understand that the IB is extremely strict when it comes to plagiarism, so I have refrained from doing so so far... but I had this idea a while ago because I think writing it out informally at first, maybe even presenting it online to an audience and getti

  23. Hi! So I've decided to write my EE in visual arts. We have around 2 more weeks to make preliminary research questions or at least decide on an area of study. I'm from Russia and I've always been very interested in the time period around WWII - Cold War and I've recently found out about how CIA used the works of artists like Pollock, Kline and de Kooning as propaganda/weapon against the Soviet Union during the Cold War. This spiked my interest greatly and I would love to write an extended essay about something that has to do with this. But I am not quite sure in what direction I should go and h
  24. Hi! So as my title says, I am planning on writing an EE in visual arts, but there is a problem - I have not taken visual arts in the IB. I have been in love with art for as long as I can remember, my entire room is filled with prints and paintings from various artists and I frequently make art in my spare time. So yeah, I'm a giant art nerd. However, I am not that familiar with all the art theory (colours, lines, lightning, all the stuff I heard my VA friends talk about), and I wonder if that would be a huge disadvantage? Also, does the new change for the extended essay somehow affect how easy
  25. Ok so I'm stuck in a really annoying situation in my arts class. Basically over the course of the past year I've been producing pieces (mainly photographs) that include nude models and have encountered a few problems with my school when I expressed that I wanted to include these photographs in my final exhibition. Basically I was told to alter the pieces or I wouldn't be able to submit them. Whilst I understand they probably want to appease everyone (teachers, parents who may see the exhibit etc.) and avoid any sort of social faux pas, frankly, I found the experience to be patronizing both to
