    Mission Statement
    Our mission as the BGHS Fine Arts Department is to create a safe and collaborative environment that embodies the IB Philosophy; to provide students with creative opportunities that expand their learning beyond the classroom.


    Students examine and respond to a body of artwork and compare the themes of the artwork to social, cultural, or political issues in their own lives and in their local and global communities. Students learn tools and techniques dealing with Drawing, Collage, Painting, Fibers and Sculpture. Students choose an art-making approach, plan an artwork that investigates meaning relevant to a current theme or idea, and document the art-making process. After in-progress critique based on relevant criteria, students revise and complete their art work and provide an artist's statement. Students curate and present an exhibition to the public.
