Beijing - School Report Question and Answers
What fine arts electives are available (music, drama, visual arts)?
Kids usually have 2 arts related periods in middle/high school. Design is a part of school starting in elementary and includes everything from building in one of the wood-working shops to designing in one of the schools kitchen classrooms. This is part of the curriculum and blows my mind when I see what my kids are being exposed to. My middle schooler built a bluetooth speaker - designed it first in the classroom, built the wood box exterior, and then built the electronic components to go inside. In addition to design this year seems to include a visual art and a performance art. My kids have studied strings, band, and drama, have painted, sculpted, etc in art. These things are also available as clubs/after school activities. - Dec 2022
