The Art Department believes that an art education should-

  • Develop an awareness of the world around us

  • Develop an aesthetic appreciation of the world and respond to it in a visual way

  • Give an insight to other cultures and times, drawing parallels with real life situations

  • Provide opportunities to make individual and personal responses

The learning environment that we create in the department is an important one. It is vital that when students enter the rooms they are surrounded by positive messages about our subject. Experience has taught us that respect for our surroundings comes from a visual environment which is colourful, exciting, meaningful and one which reflects values and achievement.
