After exploring what a typical day is like for students in Kindergarten, in grade 3, and in grade 6 earlier this year, this month we’ve chosen to focus on a building rather than a grade. Read on for an inside look at the first-rate TASIS Visual Arts Program and a snapshot of what one day is like in the beautiful Şahenk Fine Arts Center.
Taking it to the Next Level
TASIS has a long tradition of graduates moving on to pursue the arts at the university level, with a remarkable number of students each year receiving offers to both degree and foundation art, architecture, and fashion programs all over the world. (More than 15 percent of students in the Class of 2020, for example, were accepted to art schools.)
Below are profiles of 12 TASIS graduates from the Classes of 2018–2020 who have chosen to pursue degrees in the creative arts or art history. Enjoy their stories!
