Think children don’t need ART in the 21st Century? Think again...
Art education teaches children to:
Problem solve - keep an open mind, entertain different possibilities
Communicate - interpret visual information, generate ideas
Be creative – take risks, develop a sense of innovation
Collaborate and co-operate – understand their actions affect others, compromise for a common goal
Organise - concentrate and focus, develop motor skills
Be socially responsible - know and appreciate diverse societies
Be self–directed - develop healthy work habits
Be fluent with technology - create information in a variety of forms and media
We do Drawing, Painting, Printmaking & Sculpture in Year 9 Art Visual
Art is an option subject in Year 9 and students experience 4 lessons per week over one term where their learning habits are embedded through the application of practical skills, exploration and development of visual ideas and exposure to a variety of disciplines, materials and processes.
All materials are provided for by the college.
