Students have opportunities to develop a wide range of practical skills and techniques including drawing, painting, sculpture, graphic design, printing, and digital manipulation

Key Stage 3

Year 7: Students explore colour theory, painting, graphics, symmetry and complete a mask project.

Year 8: Students learn the techniques of one and two point linear perspective, then employ them to design their own dream bedroom and dwelling. They study Hundertwasser’s work and explore his very personal approach to composition. 

Year 9: Students study the history of writing and printing; design an alphabet; then learn about Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Fauvism and Cubism. They explore photomontage and produce a work that reflects the influence of Hockney.
