Longstanding art teacher, Penny Reid, provides opportunities for candidates to develop breadth, challenge and application. This practical and experiential course focuses on the development of creativity and on honing research skills.
Pupils develop skills and qualities that are in demand in many different careers: independence, flexibility and resilience when approaching tasks; draw on their understanding of expressive art when developing and resolving their ideas and artwork; reach informed creative decisions and manage their own learning through planning and research; broaden their understanding of visual culture and make connections between ideas and contexts.
