This creative cross curricular subject serves to build resilience in pupils as they learn from their mistakes and solve problems as they work through a project both individually and as a team.All of our teachers are subject matter experts, and are often assisted by visiting artists.
The Art Department at Edgeborough aims to offer a creative and supportive learning environment for all pupils regardless of their natural ability.
Throughout the school, pupils are encouraged to express their ideas and opinions, discuss and justify preferences and apply such understanding to work of their own. Projects on a yearly basis include stop motion animation, studying the work of artists both past and present, ceramics, felting, sculpture making and printing. Pupils also play a role in painting scenery and sets for the various productions put on by the Drama Department throughout the year.
The Art Department is an open space that welcomes pupils who want to explore their creative side. The topics covered in each year group are fun and innovative, inspiring pupils to get involved. Over the last 12 months pupils were able to bring home work such as clay houses, Harry Potter style magic wands and Roman pots among lots of others brilliant creations.
Edgeborough secures many art scholarships to future schools and regularly submits the pupils’ talented artwork to competitions, such as the Royal Academy of Arts ‘Young Artisits’ Summer Show’. Read more on our news pages.
