Junior Art

From year 7 to 9 the pupils are given two periods (80mins) of Art each week during which they are taught a range of skills and cultural connections. The emphasis is very much on building confidence in self expression, developing enquiring minds whilst forming a good foundation in drawing for those continuing to GCSE and having fun. Drawing, Painting, Photography, Animation, Printmaking and Sculpture are all taught through innovative projects. An exhibition of the finished work is held at the end of the year in Ondaatje. 

Trips are an important means of inspiration and have included visits to Broomhill Sculpture Park, Plymouth Aquarium and Woolacombe Bay. For those pupils keen to do more there are opportunities to join the Junior Art Club, Photography and Art Appreciation activities on offer throughout the week. To view more information about Junior Art and Prep lists see the Study Posters below.
