From the first experience of Primary School until final graduation, our art students at Berlin Cosmopolitan School are guided through a cohesive, forward-thinking art programme that prepares them for success in the Abitur and the International Baccalaureate Diploma in Visual Arts. Integral to this is that students develop inquiring and compassionate life-skills.
In line with the IBO philosophy, we especially nurture critical and original thinking as well as the appreciation and understanding of different cultures. Our teaching strategies naturally integrate these with the focus on rigorous contextual studies and the applied, specific skills that constitute the Berliner Rahmenlehrplan.
The Secondary School Art students and their teachers enjoy using the new Secondary Art Space, which showcases artwork in two large street-view windows and has a gallery space beside the teaching area. We are privileged to enjoy a highly talented and creative community, enhanced by a diversity of cultural influences. Our young artists produce excellent and competitive results.
Our Upper Secondary Art Department enjoys exhibiting annually in two excellent gallery spaces. The facilities and programmes include digital image manipulation, film, video, photography, ceramics, as well as an array of traditional and contemporary printing, sculpting, drawing and painting techniques, with specialist workshops and tuition. Please check in regularly for our student art work. Students inform their artwork with regular gallery visits that embrace our ideal location right in the heart of Berlin’s art scene. BCS encourages students to thoroughly explore and develop their own voice and visual language on the Visiual Arts IB Diploma Programme, by supporting a student-led focus.
