In Art our aim is to provide a sense of security and an atmosphere of respect out of which student’s creativity can flourish. We encourage our students to engage with all aspects of art, craft and design and work together to develop the quality and range of courses, facilities and experiences available to our students. We recognise our responsibility for raising student’s awareness and understanding of the potential future opportunities available through a good education in a creative subject. We look to share our passion for the subject, subsequently engaging, enthusing and building the confidence of every student.
Students experience a range of methods, media, materials and techniques. They will study a variety of areas including drawing, painting, sculpture, print-making and textiles. Our hope is that our students gain knowledge and understanding of a range of processes and themes, enabling them not only to express themselves but to develop a deeper sense of understanding about influences of art all around them.
