Art

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”

Intent

 Art and Design equips pupils with the skills to enjoy, produce and engage with the visual arts throughout their lives. It provides the opportunity for pupils to explore contemporary and historical sources of art and take an individual approach to their art, craft and design making. In KS3 we offer a wide range of skills, techniques and artists for pupils to experience, including drawing, painting and sculpture. Pupils are encouraged to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design.
