aidi-art-design-newsFor kids who are especially gifted in or aspire to go for art while studying in a bilingual atmosphere, there is now a perfect option.

Aidi School just launched the Aidi International High School of Art & Design in mid-August to meet the demands of those who dream of going to art universities around the world. 

“The number of art students is increasing each year. We will offer a professional course to them to help them to fulfill their dreams,” said Cui Mingli (AKA Tracy), Head of Art and Design. Holding a TESOL certificate, Tracy had previously been with Aidi for seven years teaching subjects related to English. All students who are eager to learn art and design are welcome to apply, and they don’t have to have any training in art and design before. 

However, there are indeed other requirements. For admission of Year 10 students, they should have a graduation certificate from Junior Middle School and pass the Aidi English Language Center’s exam or achieve IELTS 5. While for students wishing to go to Year 11, they should pass exams held by Aidi when they were in Year 10 and also pass the Aidi English Language Center’s exam or achieve IELTS 5.5.

According to Tracy, there are at the moment two grades, Year 10 and Year 11, and each grade now has one class of 10 students. In the long run, each grade will have one to two classes with 10-15 students each. 

The 20 students enrolled this year will be taught by an incredible number of 12 teachers, including three foreigners, in art, art design and English. Subjects to be taught include Chinese and culture, English, IELTS, Math, Science, Business, Art, Art Design, Drama, and PE (Physical Education). 

Teaching by the foreign teachers will motivate the students to learn English better and experience the overseas art teaching style in advance, which will prepare them well for their future overseas study, Tracy iterated. In Chinese and culture course, students will not only learn Chinese culture, but also other cultures. And when the students begin to prepare their portfolios, they will get one-to- one tutorials, she added. 

In the third year, the art & design High School will provide special dual curriculum options where students can choose different professional courses according to their own career planning and ensure they achieve effective and successful studies. This allows students to make choices after they learned what it is like to be an art student, and if art study fits for them. 

For students who want to study art in university, the first two years’ learning and accumulation in art and design will give them a solid foundation for future study. For those who decide not to pursue an art major, they can still keep the option of conventional commerce and science study, and use art as a great advantage over their peers in their university and scholarship applications.  

“The graduates from the High School are supposed to be talented across various fields, having aestheticability and academic skills to become contributing members of families and society. The most important thing is they are capable of doing new things, appreciate life, and improve the sense of happiness,” concluded Tracy.
