Art and Design

You are here:
Art, craft and design enables students to explore their environment through stimulating creativity and imagination. Students are encouraged to use a wide variety of materials and techniques which provide visual, tactile and sensory experiences, using colour, form, texture and pattern. Each student follows an individual pathway through the Art, craft and design framework. Themes may be governed by student choice and cultural influences, as well as the life and works of selected influential artists such as, Matisse, Van Gogh, Picasso, Klee and Kandinsky. Throughout art lessons students are encouraged to analyse and evaluate their own work and the work of others, offering positive responses to help build on practical skills and improve upon ideas, feelings and meaning, using the visual language of art
