Celebrating our creative community

Please join us in celebrating the work of our maids and guards who have joined us for the first time as we come together as a creative community to represent ‘caring community’ in wire.

Here is some of their work together with the inspiration behind it. The rest of their work will be on permanent display together with the kids’, teachers’ and parents’, once it comes back from the River City Exhibition.

If you see our talented maids and guards around the school, I am sure they would be very happy to hear what you think of their work.

Please email me – daisy.ca@kis.ac.th – if you would like me to pass on any comments. Many thanks.

The River City Exhibition (where KIS kids, teachers, maids & guards come together to represent a caring community in wire) runs until 7th October. The incredible artwork of our Diploma kids is also on display, along with the artwork of children from 9 other international schools around Bangkok. We’d love to hear what you think.

Our caring community

Thank you to all who came to represent a caring community in wire last week. It was a really harmonious experience and everyone created really beautiful work, with a meaningful message. You can see it all on display in the atrium, where the kids work will soon be joining it. We’re also really looking forward to seeing Veron & Meranda (G5)’s finished piece that they have been working on at home. It’s a great idea – watch this space.

Hope you’re all having a great week.

What should a caring community look like?

It has been great working with so many of you as we come together to ask ourselves what a caring community should look like. And we can represent it in copper wire.

Thank you so much to G5 parents for joining us in the art room and sharing your skills. The kids loved it. As did I. And I hope you had fun too!

Very special thanks to Veron (Meranda’s mum) and Jewel (Isabella & Amanda’s mum) for sharing their great talents and specialism with wire work and jewelry. I hope we will have many more opportunities to work with them both again.

Parents are always welcome in the art room – email if you want to join us, any lesson: daisy.ca@kis.ac.th

If you haven’t already yet, be sure to join us outside Miss June’s room this Tuesday 4th September from around 2.40pm- 3.55pm to show us your idea of a caring community in copper wire. No previous skills needed – we’re here to support you.

What should a caring community look like?

This is the big question we’ve been developing our answers to in art this term so far. And the kids have come up with some ingenious ways of representing their ideas in copper wire and beads.

Be sure to drop by the art room to see your child’s work so far.
As the heart of our community, we would love you to join us in answering this question.

All week after drop off and pick up, there will be the chance for you to come and represent in wire the ideas that really make a caring community for you.

You don’t need any experience, or even a clear idea yet – I will be there to support you. As will, fingers crossed, at some point this week, our two artist mums who specialize in wire work.

So join us from tomorrow (Tuesday 28th) after pick up on the three new tables outside Miss June’s room for our next community art project together. We look forward to seeing you there!

If you have skills to share, please don’t be shy – let me know: daisy.ca@kis.ac.th.

We would love to learn from you.

Looking forward to seeing you at 2.45pm this Tuesday for Observational Drawing!

I’ll let the wonderful art that our parents and kids produced in last week’s observational drawing class speak for themselves. Have a look at Tara’s to get a sneak preview of the art installation that we’re working towards in these classes. Remember, you don’t have to be able to draw to come – we’re here to support you on your drawing journey. It’s a great community of parents and kids and a lovely relaxing thing to do with your kids at the end of the day. See you there!

Kids and parents showcase their creative talents!

Scroll down to see just some of the kids’ wonderful Still Life artwork on display in the atrium! More to appear as the kids finish their pieces that they have been taking such care over. They should be feeling very proud.

And scroll down further to see what our parents and kids got up to in our first Community Observational Drawing Class last Tuesday as we prepare ourselves for our next Community Art Installation. Thank you so much to everyone who came. It was a really lovely time together and I’m blown away by your drawing skills. I’m excited to see what subjects you’ll choose next. Community Observational Drawing Class will resume next Tuesday. All welcome. Look forward to seeing you there.
