Our Grade 2/3’s have been interacting with Grade 2 students in a school across the world in Colorado Springs, USA!
Ms. Davis in Colorado and Ms. Kelli at NISC started thinking about how we could connect our students and share their artwork with each other. Our first attempt was a success their Grade 2’s created collages of their learning communities and sent us a Voicethread to comment on their art. Ms Kelli put all the Grade 2/3’s art on FLICKR to share their emotions in art.
Here are the Grade 2’s Learning Community Collages:
And our Flickr feed:
Exploring Emotions in Art

Now we are sharing our In the Style of drawings we are creating in our How We Express Ourselves unit:
In the Style of… VanGogh
In the Style of… O’Keefe
In the Style of… Picasso
Let us know what you think!

Updates from Studio X our very own collaborative multi-age art club. We have members from grade 4- grade 12 and we are attacking our school campus with art!
We have taken over the main stairs of our central building and made them amazing!
Designed by grade 12 Tanya and painted over 2 weekends with the help of all the group members, we love it and hope you will too…
It is the time for a gentle reminder… each grade level has a page above ^
please see what awesome things which the learners are participating
also December brings exciting things too… Festival of Lights, an arts celebration on campus as well as an all school exhibit at the InterContinental Phnom Penh!
MRISA Arts Festival
(or Cultural Exchange)
This year, the MRISA CX was hosted at UNIS in Hanoi, Vietnam from 3-5 May. Each year small groups of students from the 8 MRISA schools join together to experience the arts; dance, music, drama and visual artists and teachers share their expertise with students in multiple workshops over the course of three days. The days were spent taking different workshops, exploring ones creativity and making new friends. Examples of workshops included; graffiti, world-drumming, popular dance, t-shirt making and stomp. In the evening students either got on stage themselves or watched their peers and professionals perform. This year’s participants from NISC were: Saerom Yang, Aspasie Song, Hyeok Keun Choi, Yujiin Choi, Jome Suwannarat, Sophie Ahn, Tanya Ahn, Sentosa Mam, Joobin Lee, Putree Ly, and Fahid Sharaf.
