At AIS we see Arts and Design as playing a critical role in creating students who are not only critical thinkers and complex problem solvers, but who can also communicate and create.
Theatre, Music, Visual Arts, and Design emphasize creativity and innovation, and also focus heavily on students’ learning the craft, i.e., the processes and techniques of the art (or design) form.
In honing their ability to express their ideas and messages, whether visually or auditorially, to an audience, students become more competent and confident communicators.
As in other areas of the International Baccalaureate
curriculum, we then ask our students to integrate their skills in Art and Design into how they address local and global issues and challenges.
