Arts in the PYP How arts practices are changing Structured, purposeful inquiry is the main approach to teaching and learning arts in the PYP. However, it is recognized that many educational innovations (or, more accurately, educational reworkings) suffer from the advocacy of a narrow, exclusive approach. The degree of change needed to teach arts in this way will depend on the individual teacher. As an aid to reflection, the following set of subject-specific examples of good practice has been produced. Arts strands What do we want students to know? Responding The process of responding provides students with opportunities to respond to their own and other artists’ works and processes, and in so doing develop the skills of critical analysis, interpretation, evaluation, reflection and communication. The responding strand is not simply about reflecting; responding may include creative acts and encompasses presenting, sharing and communicating one’s own understanding.

The Bizarre, Flexible Paper Sculptures of Li Hongbo What at first look like delicate works of carved porcelain are actually thousands of layers of soft white paper, carved into busts, skulls, and human forms by Beijing artist Li Hongbo. A book editor and designer, the artist became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape. He applied the same honeycomb-like paper structure to much larger human forms resulting in these highly flexible sculptures. Hongbo recently had a solo show at Dominik Mersch Gallery in Australia who made the videos above, and you can see much more of his work on their website.

The Drawing Center | New York, NY The Alphabet of Art The Robert J. McKnight Memorial Web Site Welcome to the Alphabet of Art. This site explains, in simple terms, the elements of visual design.

The Alphabet of Art is a service of Guidance Communications, Inc. The Alphabet of Art — A Notation System for Visual Design The visual notation system known as the Alphabet of Art is made up of Elements and Attributes. The seven Elements are the things that the artist or designer works with: Line, Line Direction, Shape, Size, Texture, Value, and Color. The Attributes are defined as the qualities that the art or design conveys to the observer. In any notation system there must be a method of making comparisons.
