Wells Participation in 1st Thailand Art Talent 2018
Wells International School was greatly honored to participate in this year’s 1st Thailand Art Talent held at River City arts & crafts center. This event empowered our students in visual and performing arts to showcase their artworks to a wide audience, serving as an opportunity for our aspiring young artists to gain exposure and recognition for their artistic and creative masterpieces.
Visual & Performing Arts at Wells
Wells International School offers the IB Diploma Programme as one pathway to prepare our high school students for university. One of the subjects being offered is IB Visual Arts, which aims to develop and experience student artistry and creativity skills. Most of the artwork on display was products of our IB and non-IB visual arts student alumni – works which were showcased in their final visual art exhibition. The IB Programme at Wells offers a variety of other courses, including Literature and Performance.Our Visual & Performing Arts Department offers students different opportunities in the arts, including dance, drama, choir, and band. Several performing arts performances are showcased throughout the year, and we were grateful for the opportunity to share one of our student dance numbers in the Art and Creative School Fair initiative.
