Art & Design

As part of the ADTV Faculty, Art & Design offer unique opportunities for students to reveal their potential, express their ideas, develop their imaginations, investigate a wide range of images and products and develop their problem solving skills.  Students working in the subject areas will develop knowledge about themselves, others, culture and society and will develop a visual literacy which will enable them to respond using a range of processes, techniques and materials.

We aim to develop understanding of visual language and to encourage personal expression, imagination, sensitivity, conceptual thinking, observation skills, analytical abilities and practical orientated attitudes.

KS3: What will students learn?

Students experience the subjects of art, graphics, and textiles in both Years 7 and 8.  

Art is timetabled throughout the year and students will experience one lesson every week. They will learn how to use a wide variety of different media and materials from painting, drawing, printing and 3D sculpture work.

Graphics and textiles will be project based work for 16 lessons each year. Within each subject specialism students will experience fabric dyeing techniques, how to use a sewing machine, graphic symbols and communication, book design and character design.

KS3: Assessment

Students’ work is formally assessed with written feedback for individual projects.  All students are taught to achieve and progress through assessment for learning activities and regular target setting. They will be assessed on both practical drawing and making and written work within each subject specialism.
