Arsom Silp Institute of the Arts is the product of a 10-year experience achieved from managing Roong-Aroon School. It is aimed at offering an alternative educational venue to Thai people.
After arriving at the realization that the Thai way of subject-based teaching and learning methods alienate learners from their environment and society, the founders of Arsom Silp Institute of the Arts decided to equally combine the arts, an academic pedagogical approach to the Thai wisdom approach to foster the highest potential learning experience.
With clear objectives to combine academic subjects and life experiences, the instructors, who are experts in their fields, closely monitor and assist students in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Arsom Silp Institute of the Arts referred to as “Arsom Silp” (Asram of Arts) was established as a not-for-profit organization. The Institute, operated under the patronage of Roong-Aroon School Foundation, San-Sang-Aroon Foundation, and Yamaluddin Foundation. The three foundations provide parts of its startup fund, and enables the Institute to acquire and maintain its personnel, and a plot of land. In October, 2006, the founders were awarded a permit from the Higher Education Commission to establish a private tertiary educational institute.
