Mount Vernon High School presents first International Baccalaureate Art Exhibition

Artwork lined the library at Mount Vernon High School on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, as the school held its first ever International Baccalaureate (IB) Art Exhibition.

Seniors Sofia Fuentes and Alexis Outlaw displayed their work as part of their art requirement for IB, which is a rigorous program that provides students with interdisciplinary learning experiences. They are also the first students at MVHS to submit to IB for art.

IB art is a two-year course, and students worked in a variety of mediums to create their artwork. The course also can be used towards achieving an IB diploma, which students can earn by completing the six IB core subjects and other requirements.
