Curriculum: Art

In Art, students learn to explore their creativity and expression.  Through this, they learn to reflect on their feelings, their emotions and the way they express these.

The curriculum will help students explore visual, tactile and other sensory experiences and to communicate ideas and meanings.  They will work with traditional and new media, developing confidence, confidence, imagination and creativity. They will learn to appreciate and value images and artefacts across times and cultures, and to understand the contexts in which they were made.

In Art, students will also reflect critically on their own and other people's work, judging quality, value and meaning.  They will learn to think and act as artists and designers, working creatively and with real expression.

Beyond the curriculum, students can participate in a range of enrichment activities, such as: Key Stage 3 art club, Illustration club, City of Lights, joint school projects plus a range of gallery visits within Cornwall and to London.
