The IBO Visual Art Syllabus is posted on this page to describe the two year course requirements. During the first year the candidates will become familiar with its content and they will learn to apply the markband descriptors in evaluating their studio work and investigative workbooks.
The markband descriptors are described in this document. Students are encouraged to refer to the descriptors often as the markbands are the basis for the evaluation of the students' progress and final internal and external assessment. IBO has issued a clarification of the evaluation external and internal assessments.

IB Art encourages the use of a working artistic vocabulary when reflecting in the IWB or discussing studio artwork.

IB Art students will refer to this information throughout the two years of SL-A. Please feel free to ask questions and to clarify understanding of the information by using Wikispaces IBArt, email (, or by requesting time after school for personal help.
