"All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.” - Pablo Picasso

The Art curriculum is sequenced to provide students with a structured approach to explore and build the key knowledge and skills essential for art and design including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture and textiles.

We aim to provide learners with a depth of knowledge of artists and in order to produce creative work, explore their ideas and visually record their experiences. We actively encourage learners regardless of their ability, background or starting point to express their creativity in a meaningful way, providing opportunities to celebrate our diverse community.

Our curriculum engenders high expectations and challenge in order to build students’ perseverance, independence and self-belief, while still fostering an enjoyment and love of art.
