Art and Design enables pupils to explore their creativity and ideas using a range of media such as line-drawing, paint, collage, clay and 3D modelling. Pupils are engaged, inspired and challenged and encouraged to experiment, invent and create.
At KS2 and KS3 pupils investigate and get inspired by different well-known artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet, Rousseau and Klee. Inspiration also comes from the Art of different cultures, times and places such as the Ancient Egyptians or Native Americans. We encourage pupils to believe that there are no mistakes in Art, only experimentation and the development of ideas.
Older pupils at Thorneloe Road and RSS are fortunate because they have the chance to work with graffiti artist Matt; the building is looking good with all the work they produce and they enjoy taking quality work home.
At Upper KS3 and KS4 pupils have the option to take BTEC Art focussing on Street Art and the development of Graffiti designs and skills. At this level, pupils can select their own starting point for study and they enjoy developing ideas and experimenting with techniques.
