All students that are involved with our art department attend one art lesson per week at KS3&4. Projects are designed to instill confidence and creativity in their work.
Over a series of projects, we aim to enable learners to develop basic graphic design skills and to use materials, tools and equipment competently and safely. The lessons focus on 2D Graphics, with projects including advertising, information design, publicity, promotions and illustration.
Skills addressed include working from a brief, experimenting with materials, and recording from observation and imagination to develop their artistic responses. Students also have the freedom to extend their learning and choose art for their vocational studies if they wish to do so.
