Visual Arts Exhibition

Until 1 July 2021

This year's DP Visual Arts Class of Dresden International School (DIS) presents a virtual exhibition covering a range of creative works along with artistic exploration of the two-year course.

Despite the devastating impact the pandemic has had on their artistic development, the DP Visual Arts students of 2021 have managed all evoking challenges with resilience and grace.

Themes of the exhibition cover investigation of childhood and cultural roots, existentialism, the surreal world of the conscious, the power of colored textures, and the interaction of shapes and space, using different styles like Abstrakt art, Surrealist realism, symbolism, realism, and photography.

Saying Goodbye to Grade 12

We said goodbye to our 38 students of Grade 12 and we were really pleased that this year we could actually say goodbye in person, rather than the online experience we had last year. At our traditional send-off event, we witnessed emotional moments full of cheers, laughter, and tears. We have been so impressed to watch our graduating class navigate through these final two years, especially during the times of the covid pandemic. Congratulations on all of you have achieved so far and good luck in your exams!
