Aims of the Department
The Art and Design department aims to bridge the gap between art and design in school and in the real world. Our students will learn to understand that art and design is an intellectual exercise. They will learn that art and design will extend the means of communication.
This discipline provides the vision and creativity with which we shape the environment in which we live. We offer a full breadth of technical skills and constructive experiences. The work will always be firmly rooted in its social-cultural context. This is achieved through a challenging, exciting and broad curriculum aimed at boys.
Our Approach to Lessons
Our students are encouraged to investigate and explore various art techniques, concepts and ideas. Through careful teaching, they are also encouraged to develop a sense of enjoyment and excitement with the subject, as they make and display their artistic ability to others through individual and group work. ‘Creativity’, Christian and Enterprising values balanced by the study of art ‘tradition’ is at the heart of our instruction.
