The Art & Design department has a separate specialist room that contains large practical tables, interactive whiteboard, free standing easels, a still life/3D work area and a kiln room.  Pupils engage in a wide range of topics throughout the school to produce 2D and 3D artwork using a variety of materials, tools and techniques.  Each year these topics ensure there is a progression in thinking skills, development of ideas and expression and techniques in using art materials.  Pupils will research and use a variety of themes on which  to base their artwork by looking at art masters, 20th Century modern artists, contemporary artists and artwork from past/other cultures.  There are opportunities to explore and experiment with pencil, charcoal, pastel, paint, printing, clay and sculpture using other materials, collage and ICT
