The Arts play a major part in school life at St. Andrews International School, Green Valley. We believe that studying Music, Drama, Visual Arts and Dance helps students become aware of additional methods of communication and develop a lifelong engagement with and appreciation for the arts.
In art, craft and design at St. Andrews International School Green Valley, pupils explore visual, tactile and other sensory experiences to communicate ideas and meaning. They work with traditional and new media, developing confidence, competence, creativity and imagination. They learn to appreciate images and artefacts across times and cultures, and to understand the contexts in which they were made. In art, craft and design, pupils reflect critically on their own and other peoples work, judging quality, value and meaning. They learn to think and act as artists, craftspeople and designers. They appreciate the role of the creative and cultural industries that enrich their lives.
Secondary students may choose to study the Cambridge International General Certificate of Education (IGCSE) in Art and Design. This is a two year course and the most popular international curriculum for 14 to 16 year olds, leading to a globally recognised qualification.
At higher level students may choose Visual Arts as an aspect of the full International Baccalaureate Programme. At IB level students investigate past, present and emerging forms of visual arts and engage in producing, appreciating and evaluating these. Our students develop an understanding of visual arts from a local, national and international perspective.
