Calling all Artists for IASAS ART Submissions


(by Audrey M)

ISM High School Visual Arts students are invited to apply to be one of 5 art delegates to represent ISM as outstanding ambassadors at this year’s IASAS Cultural Convention held in at International School Bangkok from Wednesday, February 29th – Sunday March 4th 2012.

ISM will select 25 artworks to send to  IASAS Dance, Drama and Art Cultural Convention at ISB.  5 ISM art students will be selected as delegates to represent the whole body of work to the Cultural Convention delegation. Delegates will be expected to speak knowledgebly about the entire ISM collection.

The selection process for the delegates will be based on the quality of application received as well  as the desire to put together a group of 5 art students who best  represent the wonderful diversity of our ISM Art program.   At the convention, delegates will participate in creating an integrated Exhibition composed of the works sent from each of the IASAS schools.  Delegates will also take part in workshops/master classes both on the ISB campus and possibly (depending onthe flooding situation) in a site specific location.

Please complete this online application. The  deadline is Monday, 12th December, 12noon.

Please see Mr. Kucharski or Ms. Barton for more information.
