Visual arts Programme at MEA
The term “visual arts” is used to describe practices that have been more traditionally described in education as “art, craft and design”. It is important that students are exposed to a broad range of experiences that illustrate the field of visual arts, including architecture, bookmaking, ceramics, collage, costume design, drawing, graphic design, film, illustration, jewellery, land art, mask making, metalwork, painting, paper making, performance art, photography, printmaking, sculpture, set design, textiles.
Wherever possible, students should have the opportunity to experience visual arts beyond their own initial involvement. This may be achieved by inviting artists into the school, or by visiting art galleries, museums, artists’ and designers’ studios, exhibitions, film sets and/or theatres. Arts in the MEA PYP exemplify learning through inquiry because of the emphasis on, and the nature of, the creative process. Arts provide a unique vehicle to enhance the understanding of the transdisciplinary themes by providing both students and teachers with a range of mediums with which to access the units of inquiry. At MEA Arts support the acquisition of essential knowledge and skills, the development of conceptual understanding, the demonstration of positive attitudes, and the taking of action.
I have been working with children for 11 years in a variety of positions and settings in the UK, Northern Europe, Africa and China. Studying Public Arts in Edinburgh and my teaching experience abroad, led to a youth work coordinators position for Edinburgh Council in charge of youth work provision throughout the East of the city, involvement in the Scottish Youth Parliament and an Art coordinator role for the award winning WHALE arts center before to moving to China. For the last 5 years, I've been working in Guangdong's IB International Country Garden School before making the move to Ningbo and MEA.
“Sharing music with children” is something I strive for with every child. Not every student can be a professional pianist,a singer or a dancer. The purpose of Music education is to cultivate their correct posture and their physical agility. I consider it important to develop a child's music potential; understanding and appreciation and understanding of the artistic value of music in society. More importantly, music is a fantastic key to train one's personality whilst to make the them get benefited physically and emotionally.
