Art

The Art department aims to develop the skills of the students, their understanding of the breadth of the subject and contextual reference. Departmental schemes of work lead students through the formal elements over Key Stage 3, where they gain a practical understanding of the subject and develop skills while conveying their ideas visually and justifying decisions.

In Art pupils explore visual, tactile and other sensory experiences to communicate ideas and meanings. They work with traditional and new media, developing confidence, competence, imagination and creativity. They learn to appreciate and value images and artefacts across times and cultures, and to understand the contexts in which they were made. In Art, pupils reflect critically on their own and other people’s work, judging quality, value and meaning. They learn to think and act as artists, craftspeople and designers, working creatively and intelligently.
