The IB and me


Author: Andrew Vaughan

Head of Visual Arts at ACS Egham

Having taught IB (International Baccalaureate) art for thirty years in countries all over the world, I have experienced how the programme encourages students to both cultivate and challenge their own creative and cultural expectations and boundaries. It’s a thought-provoking course; students develop an appreciation for the expressive diversity in the world around them, through a variety of local, regional, national, international and intercultural contexts.

Now at ACS Egham, I teach visual arts in IB Diploma Programme, but I actually started teaching IB visual arts in Tanzania, East Africa, in the 1980s, where my IB journey began.
