Art


FACULTY LEADER: Mr S Green

The Art faculty at Prince Henry's has always been about students' individuality and personal expression. We help students experience a wide range of media, such as paint, collage, ceramics, printing and computer-assisted designs, amongst others. We also embrace a student-orientated approach to creativity whereby, over time, students become more and more independent in their approach to Art.

 

Art has always been a very popular and successful subject at Prince Henry's and the work of our students has won national recognition in Arts Education. Indeed, our present A Level course is one of the largest and most successful across the whole city.

KS3 Curriculum

All students in KS3 follow a structured curriculum in Art where they try out a variety of materials in varying scales.

Students also use Art History research and ICT skills to inform the growing development of their work.

Students are taught in mixed ability groups.
