Artist-In-School Scheme (AISS)
The Artist-In-School Scheme (AISS) supports collaborations between schools and practising Singaporean artists which result in arts education programmes customised to meet the specific needs of the school and students.

We hope that the AISS can provide exposure for students to art forms and art education experiences which the school is not able to cater to with its own in-school capabilities. For example, the AISS created the opportunity for students to learn drawing from professional artist Tang Ling Nah as part of the General Art Programme at Raffles Girls Secondary School. In addition, the artist worked with the Special Art Programme and Art & Craft Club students to create a site-specific art installation in the school.

We also hope that the AISS will help to seed long-term partnerships between schools and artists. In Yew Tee Primary School, for example, it is now a regular feature for Sri Warisan Som Said Performing Arts Ltd, a traditional arts group, to teach Angklung to all the Primary 2 students as part of the school’s Music programme. Sri Warisan also presents assembly shows at Yew Tee Primary School and organises visits for students to its Sri Warisan Studio to expose the pupils to Malay Arts and Culture.
