In order to prepare the highly motivated Grade 10i and IB 1 Visual Art students for their exams, a field trip to the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo City was organized -- a suitable opportunity to get some clean air and be inspired. Aside from being able to engage with artworks beyond the school-based context, it was a chance to have a closer look at various original pieces, techniques and compositions as well as different ways of exhibiting art.
During the day, the students worked on several sketches, took photographs and prepared presentations which were held in front of the original artworks.
Not only the quantity of galleries, also the expansive exhibition grounds and the appealing view featured the possibility to get new ideas, be creative and work on drafts for final pieces or useful sketches for the upcoming art classes.
Supervised by Ms. Veronika Garga and Ms. Lisa Kossen, the students experienced an enriching day beyond the common learning environment.
The Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo is a place worth visiting -- even if just to have a day out in the greens.
