Whilst creative and performing arts are embedded into our PYP and MYP curricula via Visual Arts, Drama and Music, we also offer students many opportunities to engage actively in these areas beyond the classroom, primarily through our co-curricula programme, visits and workshops. It goes without saying that all of these subjects are taught by fully qualified and experienced teachers in specially designed and resourced studios.
Whilst exciting subjects in their own right, which many of our students opt to pursue further studies in for their DP and beyond, we also believe that the skills developed in these areas are extremely useful for developing creative thought – an essential life skill for the modern workplace, no matter what their chosen career path.
We believe in the importance of giving our students opportunities to be actively involved in the community. We held our yearly whole school exhibition in public spaces where everyone is able to witness and appreciate works of our students and at the same time collaborate with them with some community projects. Our schools are equppied with specialist studios equipped with a large studio space and is a special area for students where they come to enjoy and create some of their personal works during their free time.
Developing creativity, critical awareness and the execution of technical skills are important factors for students to be able to express themselves through visual means. ISM students demonstrate an understanding of how and why artists create. They analyse and examine famous artworks from different culture and time period, as well as looking at social, cultural and environmental issues in different perspectives. They develop skills in ceramics, printmaking, painting, 3D sculpture, jewellery and textile design, photography, the use of mixed media and the integration of digital works.

The Art department is equipped with a large studio space and a kiln for ceramics-making. The art room is a special area for students where they come to enjoy and create some of their personal works during their free time.
Drama is a playful activity that can teach us very serious things. So while you’re having fun doing lots of physical, verbal and creative tasks in drama, you are also learning about other people, listening to and tolerating people who may have different ideas, even ones you don’t agree with. You are also learning trust and responsibility, how to work together to make something the best you can by recognising the talent and ideas of each individual. It gives you confidence and the ability to look people in the eye and say what you think constructively.
As you grow up you also learn that drama is connected to every other subject through its historical contexts, its design and technology opportunities and its creative physical medium, that’s you! You don’t have to be the best actor in the world, but you will learn to share your work with others, get out of your comfort zone and take some risks. This year, we are going to focus especially on this aspect.
