At Perryfield’s High School the Art Department strive to build creative, forward thinking individuals. Art inspires diverse approaches to communication and expression in everyday life. We aim to provide students with the opportunity to explore a wide range of media and explore working in the style of industry style jobs such as Graphic Designers to creating self-portraits in the style of Traditional Artists. Our main focus is to provide our students with a range of careers that our subject can lead you into by linking all our tasks to Higher Education placements and skills needed in job roles and salaries they provide. This insight into the working world of Art and Design ensures our students appreciate the many job roles and opportunities that can arise from our subject. Art can help build self esteem and confidence. By using a wide range of mediums students can eliminate their weaknesses and focus on improving their strengths. It enables our students to become problem solvers and become creative thinkers. Art at Perryfield’s High School will awaken a student’s awareness of their visual world, help them understand how and why it changes and how they can and should contribute by making their own mark within it.
Workshops run throughout KS3 and KS4 to extend further Key Skills that might be missed in individual projects. Workshops enables students to experiment independently without a brief to be met.
Homework is set as projects over a six-week period (1 a term) and includes tasks in a 3D form and 2D. Students are expected to spend half an hour a week on the projects to ensure the same standard of work is completed at home as is in the classroom. The tasks are set out with materials needed and expectations for final pieces but creativity and outward thinking is encouraged.
