The Art Department is on the top floor of the William Morris Building and is spread over 3 large purpose built rooms. There is also access to the dark room, photography studio and a computer suite. On the ground floor and along the corridor spaces there is a large area for displaying student work, during on going assessment and also for the end of year exhibition.
As well as the excellent teaching we offer opportunities to participate in external workshops and holiday projects, Life drawing classes, students work with primary school children, take frequent excursions to exhibitions and galleries.
We also offer the opportunity to become involved in a mentoring programme with lower school students in art classes.
Students have the chance to enter their work into major national competitions as well as to exhibit their work within the local environment. Our links with the Stationers’ Company provides opportunities to participate in Livery Company projects such as the WW1 and Great Fire of London Exhibitions.
