With monthly theme at St Andrews International School Bangkok being “We respect diversity and celebrate both our similarities and our differences”, we reflect on how this is one of the most important philosophies of the Art Department.
Within the Art Department we like to promote the idea that there is no wrong answer in our subject. We are lucky that Art, in all its different creative strands, such as photography, sculpture or textiles, represents a wonderful opportunity for divergent thinking amongst our students. This week we have been dipping into our store of images and have selected a number of artworks that best represent the theme of diversity, and the celebration of similarities and differences. We have included work where cultural diversity has been symbolically represented, but also where artwork demonstrates the diverse way our young artists have responded to a theme or brief.
