This banner showcases 8 of our Artists-In-Training and Emerging Artists, lined up in two rows. They have just finished performing a full-dress rehearsal for an upcoming play and are thus all in costume as they pose for a promotional shot.

ART:DIS Singapore provides continuous learning opportunities for persons with disabilities in the arts through two pathways – Visual Arts, and Performing Arts. Each pathway consists of four levels – Foundation, Artist-In-Training, Emerging Artist, Professional Artist – and within each level, ART:DIS aims to nurture each student through various programmes. Each student’s placement and level progression is specifically catered to their ability and learning pace. This person-centred approach emphasises on the holistic development of each individual student.

This image of a tree is a graphical representation of how ART:DIS’s views learning. The roots of the tree represents students at the Foundation level. The trunk of the tree represents students at the Artist-In-Training level. The branches of the tree represents students at the Emerging Artist level. Finally, the fruits of the tree represents students at the Professional Artist level.

At ART:DIS, we view learning to be like a tree. It starts from the roots where a strong Foundation ensures stability for the young sapling to grow. As students gain knowledge and skills at the Artist-In-Training and Emerging Artist level, they are provided opportunities to realise their unique perspective and role within the community – just as how a tree’s trunk thickens and branches stretch out. Once fully grown and the tree is able to bear fruit, the Professional Artist stands on his/her own feet and shines as a confident artist, like a jewelled fruit.
