A Symphony of Hopes, Dreams, and Vision
10 Years of Walking with the World

In the past ten years, the ideal of education has been practiced by countless individuals in the Keystone community.  Keystone is a school, but it is also a sample of the ideal of education in action.

We understand that ten years is a long way from truly realizing an educational ideal. However, for a young world school, ten years is a moment worth remembering and commemorating.

Remarks by the Executive Head of School

A Reflection on What Was and What Shall Be

“We are connected backwards and forwards in time, we are connected to each other, even if we were never on campus together. We are connected in ways that have meaning that we can comprehend right now, and in ways whose meaning may reveal itself later.”

Dr. Emily McCarren, the Executive Head of School of Keystone, delivered the opening speech for the Keystone 10th Anniversary Celebration. As the school’s leader, she reflected on important moments of Keystone over the past ten years, reiterated its positioning and educational ideals, and put forward an imaginative vision for the future based on her reflections and judgments on the status quo.

An Immersive Drama Performance

Telling the Shared Stories of All Keystone Students

Through a series of ten monologues of growth and self-discovery, Keystone students shared their own coming-of-age stories. These ten dramas, many of them penned by the students themselves, pulsed with authenticity and took the audience on the amazing journey that every Keystone student takes. As Keystone stood at the threshold of its 10th anniversary, poised between the past and the future, there could be no more fitting tribute to its legacy than these student stories.

Canvas, Compassion, and Community

A Charity Auction Unveiling the Altruistic Artistry of Student Visionaries

“Learning for the world” has long been a cornerstone of Keystone’s philosophy. With this spirit in mind, a collection of art pieces from Keystone students was collected for a charity auction at the 10th Anniversary Gala, the proceeds of which were dedicated to supporting Keystone’s long-term service-learning projects in Gansu and Sishui, Shandong. Such service learning is an important part of the school’s curriculum, giving Keystone students a broader perspective and empowering them to become agents of change.

  • 《Masters of Abstraction》

    • Author:Youxi Aanier Zhang、Jiawei Jiawei Wang

    • Grade:4

    • Material:Powder printing

    • Size:63cm x 48cm

    This artwork, from the IPC unit “The World through Artists’ Eyes”, is a collaborative effort by two young artists who have explored various styles and movements in art. They have chosen to express their creativity through abstract art forms, using human figures as the primary design elements in their printmaking work. The arrangement and application of various elements such as colors, lines, shapes, and composition result in an artistic experience that diverges significantly from traditional representational art. The human figures depicted in this work are highly imaginative, and the strong color contrasts add to the visual appeal. A unique aspect of this work is the use of transfer printing, which produces a natural, unpredictable texture effect. This technique, combined with the stark black background, creates a strong impact. The result is an aesthetic experience that transcends the constraints of reality, offering a unique, pure, and freely creative expression of art.

  • 《The Campus》

    • Author:Junxiao Shawn Yin

    • Grade:FM

    • Material:Colors on paper

    • Size:53.5cm x 43cm

    As a new Foundation Year student joining the Keystone community, the young artist found himself immersed in a world brimming with fascinating discoveries and captivating knowledge. Inspired by this transformative experience, he created an artwork that beautifully captures the essence of his journey. In the piece, the artist depicts himself ascending from the vibrant Keystone campus in a whimsical hot air balloon, a vessel filled with hope and boundless imagination. The lines and colors throughout the painting breathe life into the scene, evoking a sense of childlike wonder and innocence.

    “Fun Palm Painting” is the inaugural set of artworks created by Grade 1 students as they embark on their educational journey. Through the imaginative use of their small hands, the children have crafted a delightful array of shapes and forms. Experimenting with watercolor pens, oil pastels, and watercolor paints, they have brought their creations to life. “The Little Tiger Goes to School” perfectly encapsulates the excitement and joy experienced by these young artists as they step onto the school campus for the first time. The artwork is characterized by captivating and varied shapes, along with a bold juxtaposition of colors that adds to its visual appeal.

  • 《Painting Poetry》

    • Author:Junxi Michael Ling

    • Grade:2

    • Material:Chinese ink painting

    • Size:41cm x 41cm

    In traditional Chinese culture, the fusion of poetry and painting is a significant art form. By observing and depicting the natural landscapes, characters, and emotional expressions described in poems, artists can transform abstract textual imagery into tangible visual representations. This allows viewers to gain a more profound understanding of the poet’s emotions and thoughts. Through the medium of visual art, the mood and artistic conception of ancient poetry are brought to life. As the young author engages in this creative process, he immerses himself in the spiritual connotations and aesthetic ideas embedded within the concept of “painting within poetry”. This experience deepens his comprehension and interpretation of ancient poems while simultaneously nurturing his pursuit of beauty and fostering his artistic creativity.

  • 《The Embroidered Piece》

    • Author:Ke Duncan Deng

    • Grade:2

    • Material:Wax crayon

    • Size:41cm x 41cm

    Exploring the theme of “embroidery” and delving into the traditional craftsmanship of Chinese ethnicities, the young artist employs lines and colors to capture the intricate textures of embroidery. With a palette that is both vibrant and bold, the artwork exudes a lively and assertive quality. The artist’s use of strong contrasts and striking juxtapositions elevates the embroidered pieces to a level of high visual appeal and impact. The incorporation of the Chinese dragon pattern, a symbol that coincides with the zodiac sign of 2024, adds a playful and childlike charm to the composition. As the young artist immerses himself in the exploration and appreciation of traditional Chinese craftsmanship, he gradually develops the understanding and ability to preserve and promote the traditional cultural heritage.

    This oil on canvas artwork beautifully depicts two aplacas standing on vast and lush grasslands. The artist's meticulous use of texture and color creates a lifelike and vibrant representation of the scene, invoking a sense of serene beauty and tranquility. The selection of aplacas, known for their strength and grace, is not random. The artist's intention was to capture and communicate the majesty and resilience of nature, and its inhabitants, which often goes unnoticed. The aplacas stand as a symbol of the enduring beauty and strength that exists in our natural world. Their posture, standing tall and confident, is a tribute to the unyielding spirit of life that perseveres despite the challenges it faces.

  • 《Cultural Ripples-A Silent Auction》

    • Author:Grace Liu

    • Grade:12

    • Material:Oil On Canvas

    • Size:60 cm x 80cm

    The deep, inky background evokes the boundless sea, creating a timeless aura. The fish symbolizes prosperity and harmony, representing the intertwining forces of tradition, modernity, and commerce amid globalization. Moreover, the fish bones and the deep backdrop speak to the fragility of life and the relentless passage of time.

This piece celebrates the essence of womanhood – its enduring spirit and relentless determination in facing adversity.

  • 《Line 15》

    • Author:Angela zhang

    • Grade:12

    • 材质:Oil on canvasMaterial

    • Size:60cm x 120cm

    This artwork depicts the scene of a regular subway carriage, with a fish within which symbolizes people who commute daily through subway. This artwork contributes to explaining how repetitive tasks causes our life to be tedious and systemized. The use of opposite color, purple and yellow, creates an absurd and imaginary atmosphere. This artwork is inspired by my longstanding experience with Line 15 in Shunyi, Beijing.

  • 《Under the Veil》

    • Author:Serene Zhang

    • Grade:12

    • Material:Etching

    • Size:50cm x 70cm

    “Under the Veil” is a series comprising four plastic etchings that intricately explore the theme of the pervasive sense of surveillance prevalent in modern society. The central figure, gazing downward at the viewer, evokes an atmosphere of indifference, symbolizing the perpetual scrutiny experienced by individuals. The intricate interplay of background lines signifies the invisible oppression and limitations imposed by our surrounding environment. The veil emerges as a metaphor for the surrender of individuality in the quest for societal conformity. The pressure to adhere to social norms often results in the suppression of personal expression, with the authentic self obscured beneath a facade.

  • 《Wonders of Existence》

    • Author:Lydia Meng

    • Grade:12

    • Material:Oil on canvas

    • Size:60 cm x 80cm

    With mosaic-like brushstrokes, I explored the sense of loneliness usually felt by individuals in cities: surrounded by blurry points of light that the world has painted as brilliant yet feeling far removed from this infinitely splendid world. Amidst the dazzle, one confronts the profound paradox of modern existence—simultaneously connected and isolated, yearning for authentic connection amidst the cacophony of superficial brilliance.

  • 《lotus》

    • Material:Oil on canvas

    • Size: 60cm in diameter

    This work illustrates the ties of a family through a historical perspective. The painting presents a young boy from a fish-eye lens, zooming into the eyes of the boy. He faced the struggle between new identity and family traditions of the Qing Dynasty. It hints family constraints on the development of individuals throughout history. 

  • 《Titleless》

    • Author: Weixin Ruan

    • Grade:G9

    • Material:Chinese painting line drawing

    • Size:38cmx38cm

    For these classes these past few days, we’ve been working on an artwork that employs the use of the Traditional Chinese calligraphy brush paints, in which we practice the correct way of using the brush and harnessing our previous experiences with the practice. We learned several different ways of drawing lines by utilizing a variety of strategies, such as drawing short and stubby lines, or long, thin flowy lines etc. The beauty of this artwork is the embroidery on the woman’s sleeves, contrasting with the flowy clothes included in this artwork. I particularly like the usage of thin lines, which go well with the entire artwork.

  • 《Titleless》

    • Author: Weixin Ruan

    • Grade:G9

    • Material:Mural

    • Size:50cm x 60cm

    My original approach was to first understand and learn the art of the calligraphy brush; and I choose some sketches down below where I modeled different aspects of Dunhuang elements such as the lilies and hair ornaments on the main lady of the portrait. She is also carrying this light pink silk fabric in her hands, which is a sign of young and lively characteristics represented by the color. Her hands are cupped into an elegant poise, which shows sign of high intelligence, and sharp-witted thinking. 

  • 《Titleless》

    • Author: Cyan Xing

    • Grade:G9

    • Material:Mural

    • Size:50cm x 50cm

    It is well known that I have always been fascinated by various mythological creatures. This project provided me with the perfect opportunity for independent creation, as the beautiful lines of Dunhuang seamlessly aligned with my personal vision, effortlessly outlining the image in my mind.

    During the initial design phase, I swiftly determined the central theme: A Transtemporal Gaze. The celestial maiden, gracefully dancing, faces the majestic white dragon, embodying the enchanting fusion of human and divine elements. This juxtaposition represents the mysterious connection that spans across the two ends of time. Once I had settled on this theme, I promptly began seeking references to enrich and solidify the ideas that were floating in my mind, grounding them in tangible elements.

  • 《The world is an orange》

    • Author:Zoe Fang

    • Grade:G9

    • Material:Acrylic painting

    • Size:60cn x 90cm

    This artwork is a display of my identity in an abstract way. I included an orange as the main subject who holds my head in the center of the painting. I thought that the color orange brings energy and hope, which is the ideal mindset that I want to maintain in life.

  • 《Dance》

    • Author:Muyi Dong

    • Grade:9

    • Material:Oil on canvas and acrylic painting

    • Size:60 cm x 80cm

    "Dance" is a tribute to the spirit of perseverance and resilience in life. After experiencing pain and suffering in the midst of turbulent waves, broken and rebuilt, it can still produce new shoots of hope, grow into vines, and even blossom into the flower of life. The whole picture shows a phoenix dancing from afar, which is a double meaning of "phoenix rising from the ashes, reborn from the fire".

  • 《Tranquil Pink》

    • Author:Jolie Zhu

    • Grade:G8

    • Material:Acrylic painting

    • Size:50cm x 50cm

    My painting, titled Tranquil Pink, is a night scene featuring clouds and a moon. One of the key techniques I employ repeatedly in my paintings is blending - for example, mixing a darker periwinkle blue with a lighter aqua blue to create a sense of clearer weather.

    My primary aim in creating this artwork is to convey a sense of serenity and peace through the depiction of light, fluffy clouds. 

  • 《The Sailboats》

    This artwork, completed using the oil painting palette knife technique, is a vibrant fusion of colors that forms a striking backdrop for the white galsang flowers in the foreground. These white flowers present a sharp contrast against the colorful background, embodying the creativity of the two young artists. The flowers' purity and elegance are symbolized through this artwork, with the palette knife technique giving them a relief-like effect, making their forms appear more vivid and realistic. The artists have successfully captured the delicate textures and subtle color changes of the flowers, resulting in a harmoniously balanced composition that is both colorful and full of life. The artwork exudes a unique artistic charm, reflecting the artists’ deep understanding of the vitality and beauty of flowers.

    The plum blossom, known as the first of the “Four Gentlemen” flowers and one of the “Three Friends of Winter” in Chinese painting, proudly blooms on branches in the biting cold wind, symbolizing the heroic spirit of the Chinese nation as well as perseverance and noble character. This artwork features a large area of white space, combined with the thick and thin, dry and wet, and intense changes in the branches and trunks, as well as the opening of different plum blossoms. The composition creates a layered and rhythmic effect, evoking a unique poetic atmosphere and mood of the plum blossom, showing a vivid and expressive image.

Through the young artists’ perspective, the world around them is transformed into a kaleidoscope of colors, where every object is imbued with its own distinct beauty. Art enables us to discover and showcase the inherent splendor of nature and invites us to step into the extraordinary realm of imagination.
