Art in the MYP
"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their
inward significance." Aristotle
"The arts are a universal form of human expression and a unique way of knowing that engage us in effective,
imaginative and productive activities. Learning through the arts helps us to explore, shape and communicate
our sense of identity and individuality. A focus on the individual enhances our self-confidence, resilience and
adaptability. It encourages our sense of belonging and community through the recognition of identities.
During adolescence, the arts provide an opportunity for age-appropriate and holistic development of the
social, emotional, intellectual and personal intelligences of the student." (MYP Arts guide. May 2014 (updated September 2017).)
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
