We, at ISG Jubail believe that the Arts transcends age, ethnicity and geography. Knowledge of the Arts liberates and shapes our capacity for expression; it enriches our lives and creates cultural bonds. The Arts teach us how to handle ambiguity and lends an understanding that in life there is not always one answer. The Arts are a bridge we cross to deeper understanding of attributes that are intrinsic to humans, such as imagination and the instinct to create. We believe that the need for expression through the Arts is basic to all people and common to all cultures and times. Therefore, understanding and capacity in the Arts is essential to being an educated person.
Here at ISG Jubail, we believe Middle School Art is an extension of Elementary Art in that students are continuing to expand their conceptual understanding of art and its impact on society and culture. By making art, students strengthen their ability to manipulate the Elements of Art and Principles of Design to create images that reflect meaningful making. Middle School students are beginning to grasp that within complex forms of problem solving, purposes are seldom constant, but change with circumstance and opportunity, that small differences can have profound effects, and that the arts traffic in subtleties. Visual art teaches that problems can have more than one solution, and that communication is not limited to just words.
