KS3 Art and Design
In art, craft and design, students explore visual, tactile and other sensory experiences to communicate their ideas. Over Y7/8/9 students work with paint, drawing media, digital media, clay and sculpture materials, and print processes. Students are encouraged to develop independent learning skills, through a varied art homework program. Extra support is available from staff during homework clubs or art club. Staff are passionate about building students confidence, and technical skills by providing an imaginative and creative curriculum.
The aim of KS3 Art is for students to appreciate and value images and artefacts across different times and cultures, and to understand the contexts in which artwork is made. Students will learn to think and act as artists, craftspeople and designers, working creatively and intelligently.
