Group 6: The Arts and the Electives
The study of a subject from Group 6 is optional.
Four subjects are available:
- Visual Arts
These subjects may be studied at higher level or standard level, except film where it is offered as an online SL course. The arts subjects allow a high degree of adaptability to different cultural contexts. The emphasis is on creativity in the context of disciplined, practical research into the relevant genres.
The assessment of these subjects reflects an eclectic attempt to combine contrasting aesthetics and forms of assessment from around the world. In particular, there is no indication of a western-oriented bias.
