KUWAIT NATIONAL ENGLISH SCHOOL – SECONDARY DEPARTMENT
ART & DESIGN EXHIBITION AND FUN NIGHT (March 2019)
The Art and Design Department of Kuwait National English School was pleased to invite parents and students to attend the Annual Art and Design Exhibition and Fun night on Tuesday 26th March (6:30 pm to 8:30 pm) in the school theatre. All the students from Year 7 to Year 12 submitted their artwork to be displayed.
Throughout the term, all students in the Secondary Department were given the opportunity to submit work to the exhibition and showcase their artistic achievements. The Art & Design Exhibition took weeks of hard-work and effort, put in by the secondary students to organise. Together, they helped decorate all of the theatre and set up the art pieces and booths. Art works are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
The Art Exhibition was from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm and the time flew by. The turnout was great; there was an abundance of people who showed up including parents, teachers, students and many more. The attendees profoundly enjoyed the event. One of the parents even said, “This is fantastic, I really like it!” The students were very pleased to show off their hard-work in front of such a large audience.
The night included a number of workshops, held by the pupils, with the aim of giving parents and guardians a taster of what is being taught during the Secondary Art and Design lessons. They showed the participants different types of art like Pop Art, Mandalas, and Monoprint, teaching them how to use different mediums like ink. There was also a doodle booth where the students took inspiration from Jon Burgerman (an English-born artist) and made fridge magnets based of his characters.
The exhibition was full of life, with people voting on the most outstanding piece of Art. There were two first place winners: a painting done by the brilliant Mariam from Year 12 and Mohammed Al Shayie in 9C. The Art Exhibition was a complete success! People left with smiles on their faces and were delighted by the event.
This is an annual event celebrated at Kuwait National English School with the objective to promote Art & Design to the wider community. We felt that we need to celebrate the hard work and achievements made by our pupils in the Art and Design department. Art speaks where words are unable to explain.
