Notre Dame Academy’s International Baccalaureate senior art students displayed their works in the NDA 2019 IB Visual Arts Exhibition. All are part of NDA’s prestigious International Baccalaureate Program. IB Visual Arts students each compiled their art pieces and wrote a curatorial rationale to be reviewed on a global scale to receive either a certification or diploma through the IB Program offered at NDA. Assessments are based on visual research of a historical topic and artists within that time period from multiple cultures , journal entries from two-year’s worth of writing on every piece they created, as well as, an evaluation done by an International Baccalaureate instructor that could live anywhere in the world. Assessments are done internationally throughout the program as they are assessed for a certificate or diploma.
