Co-Curricular Art at Marlborough College Malaysia
A rich variety of art activities are run across the school for every age group. Pupils have the opportunity to learn new skills and crafts including fashion design and mindfulness exercises. They have the chance to create collaborative murals and large scale work. They also design and make stage sets and props for the school drama productions. These activities support the creativity of every pupil and are a key component of the CAS programme. The after school masterclass sessions support pupils with coursework development and personal projects. Our pupils enjoy exciting visits to museums and contemporary art exhibitions in the region.
We encourage participation in internal and external competitions throughout the year. These include themed photography competitions, MCM Christmas Card designs and this year a prestigious Asian film competition. We were proud to see MCM pupils win the top prizes at the Wellness Living photography competition.
In addition, all pupils will have work exhibited regularly throughout the year and contribute collaboratively to the Charity Art Auction, a biannual event in the MCM calendar. The IB Visual Art and GCSE Art Exhibitions are not to be missed and highlight our pupils’ outstanding artistic achievements. Each year a number of our top artists have the opportunity to exhibit work in the high profile ‘IN’ exhibition at the Australian High Commission in Singapore.
