ART and DESIGN
CREATIVITY THE WAY OF THE FUTURE
Art and Design is a wonderfully exciting, rewarding and enriching subject. Our aim is to provide an environment which nurtures and actively encourages creativity and talent. Practical work is developed through an ethos of praise and constructive dialogue between student and teacher and all students will experience a wide range of media, techniques and processes as they grow and develop their skills at each Key Stage.
Moving Image Arts is an exciting and interesting introduction into the world of film making. Offered at GCSE and A Level, MIA allows students to take full control of their work and become, a Script Writer, Cameraman, Lighting Engineer, Sound Engineer and Director.
It can be said that no art or communication form is as influential, powerful or prolific in the modern era as the art of Moving Images. From film and television programming to advertising and web streaming, it’s a medium that resonates with people because its combination of all other art forms (performance, visual, physical, musical, lyrical, textual) most closely approximates the limitless creativity of our own dreams.
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
At Key Stage 3 pupils will explore all the key areas of Art and Design and develop their skills using a range of media, processes and techniques, working in both 2D, 3D, Fine Art and Design through a thematic approach.
