Visual Arts Program

The aim of the visual arts program is to explore practical work through a range of two- and/or three-dimensional processes and include new media and technologies in addition to traditional media and processes.

Our scheme of work has been designed to combine a breadth and depth of study, to accommodate a wide range of abilities and individual resources, and to provide opportunities for its students to explore both practical and critical/contextual work.

Our program is structured in a way which encourages personal expression, imagination, sensitivity, conceptual thinking, and powers of observation, an analytical ability and practical attitudes. We make it exciting as students visit galleries, exhibition centers and places of cultural significance.

In AIS, visual arts students have the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the role of the visual arts in the history of civilizations, and so widen and enrich their cultural horizons.

Studying Visual Art in AIS encourages students to develop:

  • experience of working in relevant frameworks and exploration of manipulative skills necessary to form, compose and communicate in two and/or three dimensions
  • an ability to identify and solve problems in visual and/or other forms
  • confidence, enthusiasm and a sense of achievement in the practice of art and design
  • engagement and experimentation with a range of media, materials and techniques, including new media and technologies.
