Other classes came to see the work. We had great chats about the artwork and they handed the older students shapes to stick on the wall. Some classes then went back to their rooms and created their own variations.

This popular show of talent is now in its third year. It places the expressive and creative potential of TISA visual arts students at the centre of a public event. This showcase of art in a professional artistic environment brings together the historical charm of Baku’s old city, with the youthful representation of life, as seen from the international melting pot that is TISA. The images on display range from the youngest to the most senior of our students, and map the developmental stages of artistic ability in visual splendour.
As you pass by the pictures on display in this delightful gallery, pause to examine the variety of techniques students have applied to their canvass. Allow yourself time to appreciate how the individual child has managed to use the appropriate tools and materials to portray what she or he has seen in the inner eye, and how the child’s emotional connection to this has ‘coloured’ the repetition – in the true tradition of an artist.
It is in this way that TISA students are able to demonstrate how they have worked, as artists, to bring you an expressive range of aesthetic expression, to please your eye, challenge your thinking, and warm your heart.
