As an international school, we celebrate diversity in a multicultural environment. At OWIS, we focus on the many ways art affects our world, beginning with how art shaped ancient civilisations. Learning about different artists and artistic movements throughout history teaches children the relationship between art and culture. This promotes students' understanding of different cultures, including their own. International school visual arts serve as a way for students to enhance their cultural awareness, an important part of preparing to become global citizens and leaders.
We provide a variety of ways to integrate art into our interdisciplinary programme. Throughout the year, students participate in art weeks and annual art exhibitions, which showcase both visual and performance art. These events allow students to talk about their creations with other students, teachers, parents and the local community. Students gain new insight and perspective when they experience and examine the artwork of their peers and receive other perspectives on what they have created.
