Creative Learning - Sunmarke School - Dubai

CREATIVE LEARNING

Imagination Unlimited

As a Positive Education school, Sunmarke inspires and challenges students to experiment, take risks, innovate and find their own voice through a diverse Creative and Performing Arts curriculum. 

Creative learning and expression at Sunmarke  - through Dance, Drama, Music, Visual Arts, TV, Video & Audio Production, Debate, the World Scholar's Cup, the Model United Nations and Social Media - is cross-curricular and takes place in and outside of the classroom developing a child’s mental and social development, and self-esteem and confidence.

Creative & Performing Arts Curriculum

Art & Design

Art and creative thinking are present in all facets of life. Our Art curriculum, teachers, and expansive Art studios give students the opportunity to develop their creative thinking and own creative voice.

Music

Music is woven across the entire curriculum at Sunmarke and is central to a student and cultural life. Sunmarke benefits from Fortes’ Academy for the Performing Arts and a team of professional music teachers who provide students with varied opportunities to learn a variety of musical instruments and skills. 
 
Every student learns an instrument of his choice and many develop mastery and choose to prepare for the Trinity/ABRSM music exams. Gifted students are nurtured to consider music as a choice of higher study, while some choose just to have fun jamming in a band. Regardless, all students develop an appreciation of music and enhance their creativity and self-development.
 

Drama

With a 380 seat Auditorium for the Performing Arts and inspirational drama teachers, Sunmarke provides students the opportunity to access, experience and contribute to various aspects of the creative process from script to stage. All students participate in whole school theatrical productions either as performers or backstage crew. They also regularly enact plays and skits and participate in inter-school competitions.
 

Dance

Dance and movement is a growing part of the curriculum and dovetails with our Music and Drama programme. Sunmarke has a large and impressive dance studio with coaches who nurture students with an interest in this area.

New Media – Sunmarke’s TV Studio, Music & Recording Studio & Media Production Studio

Multimedia, social media and technology are fundamental tools for creative expression in today’s world. Sunmarke has a team of trained faculty and a dedicated TV Studio, Music & Recording Studio, and Media Production Studio fully equipped with all the hardware, software and applications to enable students to create music, videos, and multimedia productions.
