Art gives our students a chance to express their imagination, intellect, empathy and courage in a tangible way. We aim to give them a balance between experiencing, making and understanding art and design, with emphasis also on its history and appreciation.
We offer a broad range of techniques from painting and drawing to ceramics, textiles, graphic design and photography. Through project work we give students a wide variety of creative experiences that appeal to a broad range of ability levels and styles, and they get full scope to explore their ideas, techniques, media and skills.
Pupils make and present artworks which explore themes, issues and ideas. They will explore design elements and principles such as line, colour, shape, form and texture.
This means that their artistic creativity becomes linked with competence and enterprise and they become confident in their work.
