We want our students to be valuable citizens of society, community and country.
Curriculum Intent for Art:
"Art in schools should not be side-lined. It should be right there right up in the front. Art teaches you to deal with the world around you; it is the oxygen that makes all the other subjects breathe."
Alan Parker, filmmaker.
"Art opens up those possibilities to think beyond what we already know."
Catherine Opie, Artist.
Creativity is defined as the use of imagination or original ideas to create something. This mantra is at the heart of everything our visual arts curriculum stands for. Our curriculum encourages self-expression and creativity in all disciplines and has been designed to empower students to build confidence as well as a sense of individual identity. We have a culture of high expectations through which students feel safe to experiment, make mistakes and feel free to invent new ways of thinking.
