Event Details: Wed, May 31, 2017, 6-8 pm, IPS and Cates Hill Chapel
Do you have a twin somewhere in art and history? What would it be like to walk through a gallery where the subject of the painting might appear and speak to you about their moment in time? If you could invent your own nation, what would you create? IPS’ annual ‘Walk Through Time’ Open House is happening at Cates Hill Chapel on Wednesday, May 31 and will showcase studies in art, history and humanities.
The grade 8 cohort has begun work on the Twin Project: students have found a painting that somewhat resembles them and researched the artist, the subject and the time period of the painting. They used this knowledge to write a research-style essay for Humanities and are now starting to paint a representation of the background of the painting they researched.
In the next few weeks, the grade 8 class will work on characterization in Art leading towards 1. A photo shoot where they try to re-create the painting with them as the subject and 2. The walk through time presentation (open house) where the students physically act as a “living portrait” whilst guests interact with the work. Students will be in the character as the subject of the painting and have a short speech ready to present to anyone who comes to view their work. Come and join us at our distinctly different living art gallery where you, the audience, will get to learn about and the characters in the paintings from the characters in the paintings!
Grade 6’s are learning about different countries around the world in order to invent their own nation. Their presentations will explore their invented nations. Grade 7’s have been been extensively studying one Ancient Civilization. They will present their findings (in costume of course).
