Art and Design

Working with a variety of different 2D and 3D media such as acrylic paint, oils, pastel, printing, papier-mache, watercolours, charcoal, mixed media and digital manipulation, the topics studied in each year will enable Key Stage 3 students to develop their skills in the essential ‘formal elements of art’: line, shape, form, tone, colour and pattern.

Students are encouraged to reflect critically on their own and other people’s work, judging quality, value and meaning and also be expected to work creatively and intelligently to develop an appreciation of art, craft and design.

Our aim is to encourage students to be imaginative, creative and committed in their approach and to help them develop independent research study skills.

 

 

Example Themes

Year 7

Architecture, Typography and Pop Art.

Year 8

Insects/Steampunk, Cultural Patterns and Street Art

Year 9

British War Artists, Amazing Animals (Reno, Partal and Caron)

 

Students will:

  • Explore visual, tactile and other sensory experiences to communicate ideas and meanings.
  • Work with traditional and new media, developing confidence, competence, imagination and creativity.
  • Understand how to appreciate and value images and artifacts across times and cultures, and to understand the contexts in which they were made.
  • Learn to think and act as artists, crafts people and designers.
  • Understand the role art and design has in the creative and cultural industries that enrich their lives.

Our Art & Design Department is a successful and progressive area within the school and boasts a ‘whole school’ outlook, actively participating in extra-curricular events and cross-curricular projects with other departments.

Facilities

The Art & Design Department moved into purpose built classrooms in September 2013. We have three classrooms including a specialist Textiles Room and an Apple Mac computer suite available to students during lessons and at lunchtimes.
