Students will select one of the following courses: Chemistry and Art, FabLab - Forms and Fluctuations or Sculpture – Abstract In Its Natural Form courses can be counted toward MYP technology elective requirement. (Students should bring their own lunch each day.)

1. Chemistry and Art -
Unleash your inner artist – and learn some chemistry too. How can Art and Chemistry be related? This interdisciplinary course investigates the science of materials that go into the making of art media and materials. It also develops the student’s artistic knowledge and skills while completing a studio art project that reinforces the chemical properties that they are learning.

2. Sculpture – Abstract In Its Natural Form
Explore what can happen when you blend synthetic materials and the natural world. Here you will discover the possibilities of creating a sculpture that is influenced by our environment. Various processes and materials will be used, including GMAW / MIG welding. Create a sculpture that is in motion and inspired by the world around us.
