Through a variety of activities the Art team aims to help all our students reach their full potential. We encourage a sense of enquiry about the visual world we all live in, help students express themselves through art and design and introduce students to the contribution that art, craft and design has made to the world. The subject offers opportunities for our students to develop their own creativity and produce something that is completely unique and personal.
Art and Design helps promote creative and practical skills, beneficial in many vocations. For example, directly linked careers include Architect, Advertising Executive, Ceramicist, Fashion Designer, Games Designer, Graphic Designer, Fine Artist, Illustrator, Interior Designer, Photographer, Packaging Designer, Web Designer, Gallery Assistant and Make-Up Artist, whilst other creative industries include; Floristry, Hairdressing, Magazine/Newspaper Editor, Cookery and Teaching.
