Art provides students with the opportunity to develop their creative and imaginative powers and to give them the practical skills to communicate and express ideas, feelings and meanings in Art and Design. Students develop personal qualities such as confidence, initiative and resourcefulness and understand the purpose of Art in contemporary society and in other times and cultures.

Students will make personal responses to their own and others’ environment and to the work of artists, craftspeople and designers, working in two and three dimensions.

Previous projects include:

  • Discover patterns from other cultures and make a mask or body piece.
  • Develop their drawing, painting, printing, photographic, mixed media,  and 3D skills through figure drawing, and abstraction.
