From March 27-29, YCIS Shanghai’s Regency Park Campus courtyard was transformed into a spectacular, colour-filled gallery showcasing incredible student artwork during the Pudong campus’ 85th Anniversary Primary Art Show. The entire space, including all of the walls and doors featured the students' creations! The three-day show demonstrated the tremendous creativity and skill of the young students at YCIS.
The show featured an abundance of projects, each of which incorporated a variety of art materials and techniques. The major projects all started with a single question and the children all worked together to use their talents to address the answer.
The 85th Anniversary Art Show was organised by Ms Anita Dai, Primary Art Teacher at the Regency Park Campus. Ms Dai uses her classes to inspire her students to create artwork far beyond their years. She was on hand during the show for the full three days and said of the students’ work. “A high level of artistic skill was evident in all of the projects on display, but even more significant was the level of creativity and the individual differences in each project. That is definitely the most impressive aspect of the show. Each student, from Year 1 to Year 5 should be proud of their achievements in Art this year.”
Among the sections of the exhibition were:
Other displays included watercolour collages, charcoal lions, vibrantly-coloured clay pinch pots, silkscreen dragons, African tribal masks from Year 5, as well as incredible self-portraits by Year 2 children.
To create such exciting artwork, each year level studied various famous artists from a variety of backgrounds in their art classes with Ms Dai. The students learned about the special techniques and unique styles of these artists and used this inspiration as part of their creative journeys.
After the art show came to a close, all the artwork itself was carefully collected for distribution to the young artists and will be proudly displayed in the homes of the creators.
