Welcome to the Art Department.

Our Art and Design course aims to help students to understand the variations in art that exist. It also develops their ability to explore media and techniques through a variety of projects and activities. The skills acquired in Art lessons will help many students to broaden their imagination and creativity needed in many of their chosen careers within and without the art world.

During their first two years at Ashlawn, students learn to develop their creative understanding of drawing, painting and mixed media. Those who opt for GCSE Art will develop these skills and techniques in more depth and manipulate these skills in a personal way. At A level, students have the opportunity to enhance existing skills and personalize their artistic talents in greater depth.

The Art course includes an extensive range of activities; which inspire and develop many inter-personal skills as well as technical understanding and expression of critical techniques.
