Artist-in-School Scheme

The Artist-in-School Scheme (AISS) supports collaboration between individual schools and local artists/arts educators in developing arts education programmes customised for their students.

The scheme aims to:

  • Support arts projects aligned with the school’s long term plans of developing a vibrant arts culture
  • Enhance students’ appreciation of the arts and creative thinking process through interactive learning from artists
  • Support projects that have a whole-school approach
