Why Art?

At 9色堂 ISD, we firmly believe that art is an essential mode of personal expression and a crucial component of any curriculum. Art plays a significant role in our lives by helping us process and make sense of the complexities of the world we live in. Whether it's through paintings, sculptures, music, or any other form, art serves as a powerful tool for creating a shared understanding, facilitating difficult conversations, and offering new perspectives on issues, ideas, and people.

Since the dawn of time, storytelling has been an integral part of human culture, and art is all about telling stories. That's why we strive to provide young artists with ample opportunities to explore various art forms, hone their skills, and share their unique stories with the 9色堂 ISD community and the world beyond.
