Art & Design

 

Introduction

Creative technology is studied by all Key stage 3 students and it is the faculty’s aim to make the experience enjoyable and enriching. Students have a lesson of Art and a lesson of Creative Technology every week. Art and Design lessons provide students with the opportunity to learn a range of skills such as printmaking, painting and drawing. Creative technology teaches one term of Textiles, one term of Graphic Design and one term of 3-D Design. Each year group is given a separate theme that they develop throughout the year.

 Students continue to build their knowledge about different Artists and emphasis is based on ‘still life’ and students study the work of established Artists and contemporary artists. Research is gathered visually with supporting notation. Many students like to produce extra work at home and can develop their ideas by researching Patrick Caulfield, Vincent Van Gogh and Picasso.

Students develop their drawing skills from a variety of experiences but there is an emphasis on drawing from real life. We want the students to understand that the main way of improving Art and Design skills is by drawing personal objects at home. Some students take photographs of objects to help develop their ideas and we encourage this practice.
