We offer art as a student-led subject that acts as a therapy lesson as well as a creative outlet where verbal and written expression is not always possible. There are opportunities for our students to create pieces of work that cross over into their curricular subjects of History, English, Mathematics, and Science. In recent times, our students have enjoyed three-dimensional work and painting.
Our students will study colour theory, and mark making by researching the likes of Vincent van Gogh and other impressionists. We also study the likes of Umberto Boccioni and other futuristic artists.
For students who feel more able and confident, we offer them the opportunity to follow a more structured art curriculum; acting as the foundation for further learning at GCSE level and above.
