Curriculum: Art Key Stage 3

In Key Stage 3 we ensure students are always learning something new and developing new skills. They will work on several projects each year, from a range of inspirational starting points.

A number of our projects link to our stunning Cornish environment which has inspired many artists before us. We regularly visit local galleries including The Tate, St Ives, The Penlee and The Exchange Gallery in Penzance. All Year 7 students will make their first gallery visit in the first term of arriving at Richard Lander School.

The curriculum encourages students to explore, experiment, develop ideas and produce final outcomes, working both independently and with others.

Our excellent facilities enable us to offer a broad curriculum, developing a wide range of skills. These facilities include: specialist art studios, a kiln room, dark room and multi-media digital room.

Some students in Key Stage 3 will also have the opportunity to have their Art curriculum lead to a BTEC award, allowing their Key Stage 3 work to be formally accredited.
