Art at IST is hinged on the creative process.  Engaging in the creative process anables students to develop the following qualities:

•Divergent thinking
•Making connections
•Learning from others
•Conceptual thinking
•Risk Taking

creative process

This is done through the provision of a varied range of schemes of work at all levels, hinged on excellent resources and expert knowledge, where students are encouraged to investigate and understand genres and concepts, respond creatively and take risks, analyse and learn from the work of others and develop practical skills which enable them to communicate their own ideas.

Art is an integral part of the curriculum for students in years 7 – 9. The department offers GCSE Art as an option to students in years 10 and 11 and follows the International Baccalaureate Visual Arts course for students in years 12 and 13. By following these courses, students are able to adapt to the art curriculum of both British and other international schools. The department also prepares students for further study of the subject and related courses at a higher level.
