The Visual Arts at PSI are offered in both stand-alone classes and are embedded in our core curriculum.
Visual Arts in the PYP can be stand alone units or concepts that are studied through integrating with a unit of inquiry studied in homeroom. For example, students may learn to critique artworks through the How We Express Ourselves unit of inquiry.
In Secondary School, students in Visual Arts classes use their skills to enhance CAS projects and presentations for other subject areas, as well as showcasing work throughout Block A and C. Students in the DP Visual Arts programme must mount an exhibition each spring as part of their requirements for that course.
Outside of visual arts classes, students have the opportunity to engage in a range of art-related activities, including field trips to museums and galleries, and participating in specialised workshops including life drawing, ceramics, working with textiles, and sand art.
