Visual communication learned through the study of art, craft and design is an important tool used to communicate and share information throughout history and is ever present in today’s world. The Kingshill art student will develop an appreciation and understanding of the arts, culture and the wider world through the analysis, exploration and discovery of visual language techniques.
Our art, craft and design curriculum inspires and promotes imaginative risk taking and explores solutions to our material, emotional, social and virtual worlds. Through the practical manipulation of materials, and a full understanding of how and why something is made, students learn to express and communicate their own personal ideas and create, experiment with and invent their own works of art, craft and design.
Students will be equipped with a deep knowledge and understanding of the arts as well as an appreciation of contemporary, historical and cultural practice. Students will be able to visually identify some of the great masters of the art world and build upon this knowledge with the social and historical context to understand how many artists from around the world contribute to the shaping of our future and history.
Building resilience and a sense of personal pride is integral to the art curriculum at Kingshill. The study of art and design cultivates independence, confidence and critical thinking enabling pupils to contribute as confident citizens and future professionals to the culture, creativity, economic success, leisure, material and emotional well being of our society within both national and global contexts.
