West High School 2014 International Baccalaureate Visual Art Show
Reception: Fri, Mar 21, 4-6pm
This exhibit features works of art by West High School International Baccalaureate (IB) Visual Art students. The IB Diploma Program integrates students' study during their junior and senior years in a balanced humanities and sciences program of college-level work in six subject areas, including Visual Art.
Between the end of their sophomore year and the spring of their senior year, IB Diploma students must participate in at least 150 hours of Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) activities. Art exhibits are included as part of students' "Creative" activities.
The IB Program at West High is for academically-able students who desire a curriculum that presents subject matter from a worldwide perspective. Students who are highly motivated and productive will benefit from this course of study. Selection is based on grades, teacher recommendations, and evidence of motivation. Students who complete the IB Program earn a high school diploma and the internationally recognized IB Diploma. Students may earn college credit and advanced standing at institutions of higher learning throughout the world.
