Art is a Doorway into the 21st Century

Following is the frameset for a curriculum designed for I.B. schools, schools for the gifted or schools that host a four years art program.

This curriculum springs from the belief that instilling inquisitiveness, strengthening the student’s sense of identity and cultural awareness, promoting critical understanding as well as embracing other customs and cultural values are the necessary tools to develop true citizens of the world in the global societal constructs of the 21st century.

As such, this curriculum's pivotal point spins around an enrichment in the knowledge of visual arts as a tool to develop higher thinking and independent critical reasoning. It prepares young minds for the difficult task of decision-making, and its true outcome is to prepare students with the flexibility of mind and ability to approach real life situations from different perspectives and points of view.
