Art

In a vibrant and lively Art Department, all pupils from Years 3-8 work in a wide range of media from drawing and painting to clay and textiles.

The curriculum is designed to inspire a love of creating, experimenting, exploring and learning. Each class explores a topic or theme each term which offers a new skill or technique to learn and develop. In the lower Prep, projects often support the current IPC topic. In the middle Prep the focus is on fine art skills whilst looking at a wide range of artists and makers for inspiration.  By Year 8, pupils are encouraged to embark upon more independent projects in any media they choose.

The Art Department runs a range of clubs at lunchtimes and after school as well as a Scholarship program for pupils with a real passion for the subject.

Learning is also supplemented by visiting artists and the school’s involvement in community projects that celebrate the arts.
