The department’s main aim is to foster a love of Art and a confidence in making. We believe in the significance of creativity and the value it has in education.
Art is taught across the school, with a diverse syllabus promoting appreciation for the subject and equipping the children with an understanding of how to communicate visually.
The Art studio is extremely well resourced, giving the children the opportunity to experiment and become secure in a wide range of media. Importance is placed on drawing and a grounding in traditional techniques – which can then springboard into other disciplines.
All projects reference artist and designers, both contemporary and from history. The pupils gain confidence when analysing the work of others, and also critiquing their own creations.
