Art at Kingsley Academy

Course description

The Art Department has a very diverse teaching staff that is both art and design trained. Thus the course is broad and challenging. The project briefs allow opportunities for visits to galleries, life drawing, an introduction to computer use for Art, Photoshop, photography, painting and sculpture amongst others. This is a real opportunity for true creativity and students are expected to fulfil high expectations within the brief outlines. In support of this, the Art Department runs an 'open door' policy and encourages students to use the facilities during their free time - not just for timetabled lessons - and can offer a studio area primarily for the use of AS/A2 students.
