The British School in Tokyo begins its art project with world renowned Japanese artist, Satoru Aoyama

The British School in Tokyo (BST) officially started its ‘Artist in Residence’ project with esteemed Japanese artist Satoru Aoyama. This is the first time that BST students will work directly with the world renowned Japanese artist.


Led by Satoru Aoyama and participated by selected BST Primary and Secondary students,
the art project ‘Artist in Residence’ starts in September 2022 and will last to April 2023. The
project consists of eight workshop and tutorial sessions, each session developing the
concepts and skills from the previous session.

Through the ‘Artist in Residence’ project, students will learn the creative process from the
artist Satoru Aoyama and will be encouraged to develop their own work under the theme
of diversity, in collaboration with the Artist. The final piece of artwork, a Diversity Map with
Clocks, will be exhibited at BST’s new Primary School campus at Toranomon Azabudai,
Tokyo after its opening in September 2023.

Mr Paul Tough, Principal of The British School in Tokyo, said:

I am thrilled that Aoyama san has agreed to be BST’s first “Artist in Residence”. This is a
rare opportunity, and BST’s talented students will benefit immensely from Aoyama san’s
expert guidance. The collaboration promises to produce an excellent piece of art reflective
of our community’s diversity and the school’s unique connection to Japan. We are hugely
grateful for the support of the BST Annual Fund in making this project happen.

Satoru Aoyama, the Artist, said:

I'm very excited to work with students in BST. The final work will be large in scale, free,
and reflect the diversity of modern society.

The ‘Artist in Residence’ project is funded by BST’s Annual Fund. The BST Annual Fund
aims to enhance learning experiences and provide additional highly motivating
opportunities for BST students from both the Primary and Secondary Schools.
