DP Art Show

The American International School Kuwait (AIS), was proud to hold the annual Visual Arts IBO Diploma Exhibition titled “The Green Mood”, by the artist/student Anwar Al Mousawi in Grade 12. The exhibition was a highly skilled and technically accomplished display of her drawings, paintings, sculpture, film and photography. Anwar Al Mousawi worked over two years to produce a highly refined, deeply conceptual body of works. The Visual Arts Program at AIS is a highly challenging and rigorous 2 years of art study, focusing on artists of influence and a comparison of their works. The course also involves an in-depth study of a wide variety of media exploration and experimentation leading into the execution of highly sophisticated artworks for the annual exhibition. Students are encouraged by their teacher Mrs. Angie Hani, to push conventional media and mediums beyond the norm and utilize them in new and innovative ways. Students in the DP Visual Arts Course are required to focus on a concept and build upon these ideas in detail through a variety of mediums and practices to produce a body of works consisting of 11 pieces for external assessment. Mrs. Angie Hani, the High School Visual Arts Teacher at AIS, for the past 12 years says, “I encourage my students to go beyond their expectations, motivating them to create quality refined artworks with substance and meaning. The students are often involved in interviewing artists, visiting galleries, remaining aware of the context of where they live. Students are inspired by current issues in society that nurture their own in-depth detailed study of the concept of focus. My students are taught to be highly focused and manage their time to produce high quality works leading them into academic study in Kuwait or abroad”. Anwar Al Mousawi’s concept is juxtaposition, the element of two contrasting things being placed together. “The Green Mood” is an exploration of juxtaposing green moods. Green is many characters. Green is ugly. Green is a simmering jealousy, materialistic, sick and selfish. Then again it’s beauty. It is the purity of the natural world, a serine soul, young and naive. The artworks present an idea that opposes the conventional praises of beauty, perfection, happiness and time. AIS is proud of it Visual Arts Program.
