The Arts are an essential and rich part of a student’s life at KICS and we are lucky to have such extensive support from our senior leadership team. The Fine Arts Department are truly committed to fostering all-rounded student development in the three Arts subjects; Visual Art, Drama, and Music. It is a myth to state that one has to be talented to succeed in any of the Arts subjects. With hard work and enthusiasm, almost anybody can gain a good degree of success and enjoyment from any of the Arts subjects. It is well worth pointing out that the Arts subjects are well regarded by universities and employers for the creative thinking skills they develop in students.
In addition to Visual Art, Drama and Music the department also runs extra-curricular Art activities throughout the year with an emphasis on creating original work for local facilities such as school and hospitals to try and improve the lives of children with illnesses and/or disabilities. IB Diploma students are also involved in these projects and earn credit for their CAS portfolios. We can offer a wide range of materials and processes including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, mixed-media and 3D work.
