Possible Guiding Questions for Discussing Art Possible Lesson Ideas for Making Art
  1. What do you see in these photographs? Describe the lines, colours, shapes, action and facial expressions

 

  1. Why do you think the artist has chosen this topic? Think about how Singaporeans behave on the Internet. How does it make you feel? What would you do if you are a victim of cyber-bullying?

 

  1. How else can we convey a similar artistic intent in another medium? Explain your rationale.
In this lesson idea, students could be asked to search relevant information to Singapore’s cyber world environment and studies about cyber bullying in Singapore.

The teacher might use examples to illustrate her point. For instance, ‘A 2012 study by Microsoft showed that Singapore had the second highest rate of cyberbullying amongst all countries. 1 in 3 students in Singapore have been victims of Cyberbullying. Source of information from https://vulcanpost.com/16725/students-singapore-victims-cyber-bullying/’ This statement provides insight to the situation within many students’ cyber lives and the problem is unable to be ignored.

A possible elegant art task could be:

Your new task as a designer is to design a poster/3D artwork to encourage students to stop cyber bullying by reporting these cases to the school, or trusted adults, and standing up for the rights of the victims. You should use an icon (e.g. weapon, helmet or shield) in your poster as a metaphor for protecting ourselves from cyber-bullying.
