- Part 1: Comparative Study
Students at HL analyse and compare different artworks by different artists. This independent critical and contextual investigation explores artworks, objects and artefacts from differing cultural contexts.
HL students submit 10-15 screens which examine and compare at least three artworks – at least two of which need to be by different artists. The works selected for comparison and analysis should come from contrasting contexts (local, national, international and/or intercultural).
HL students submit 3-5 additional screens which analyse the extent to which their work and practices have been influenced by the art and artists examined.
HL students submit a list of sources used.
- Part 2: Process Portfolio
Students at HL submit carefully selected materials which evidence their experimentation, exploration, manipulation and refinement of a variety of visual arts activities during the two-year course.
HL students submit 13-25 screens which evidence their sustained experimentation, exploration, manipulation and refinement of a variety of art-making activities. For HL students the submitted work must have been created in at least three art-making forms, selected from a minimum of two form lists (2D forms, 3D forms and lens, electronic and screen-based forms).
