Art and Design


This course aims to encourage students to be creative, and to experiment with different art materials. However, students do not need to be able to draw or paint already. They get the chance to work with a range of 2D media such as watercolours, acrylics, charcoal, soft pastels and photography. They can also work with 3D media such as textiles, paper, card, wire and clay. Previous students have produced excellent work in the field of street art, sculpture, self portraits and decorated tiles. Students are encouraged to work safely and to minimise risks to themselves and others. Most importantly, students are able to choose the type of art and design they want to produce.
