Central to the school’s mission statement, ACS offers an outstanding program in the Visual, Dramatic and Performing Arts.
The Art Program is an integral aspect of school curriculum and is supported by after school activities. Our students benefit from international exchange with our MESAC counterparts and host visiting artists and authors throughout the year. In addition to our own vibrant program the students take advantage of the international and local programs the city of Abu Dhabi offers. Art teachers at ACS offer a wide variety of educational opportunities in the Arts and focus on skill development, cross-curricular connections, and multicultural understanding. The Arts are viewed as a central element to the school, and this is felt in the voices of the Elementary school singers right alongside the exciting artworks of IB Visual Art students.
In the Elementary school the focus is on Drama, Dance, Music and Visual Arts offered through individual classes in these subject areas. In Middle and High School, the Arts are split even further in their specific disciplines with students being offered an array of Arts courses to choose from. Whether it be Painting and Drawing, Stagecraft, or Musical Theatre there is something for every artist at ACS. Arts at ACS is one of a kind.
