Art Studio options

by on 29/04/2017

If you study Visual Art as part of the IB diploma curriculum work, or choose to do it as one of your CAS Experiences, or even if you want to enjoy creating works in your spare time, you will be able to use our wonderful new art studio. Our experienced teachers will help and inspire you to enjoy what you create whilst here and will help you with applications to college or university if you want to continue your studies.

The art studio has been designed so that students have the opportunity to experience working with different art-making forms below:

2D forms

  • Drawing: such as charcoal, pencil, ink
  • Painting: such as acrylic, oil, watercolour
  • Printmaking: such as relief, intaglio, silk-screen, chine collé
  • Graphics: such as illustration and design

3D forms

  • Sculpture: such as ceramics, found objects, wood, assemblage
  • Designed objects: such as fashion, architectural, vessels
  • Site specific / ephemeral: such as land art, installation, mural
  • Textiles: such as fibre, weaving, printed fabric

Lens-based, electronic and screen-based forms

  • Time-based and sequential art: such as animation, graphic novel, storyboard
  • Lens media: such as still, moving, montage
  • Digital/screen based: such as vector graphics, software generated

The studio is specially equipped with an intaglio press, mannequins, sewing machines, a photographic darkroom, and a high resolution interactive digital screen. It is also well stocked with a range of art materials. IB students have their own individual storage spaces for A1 portfolios and sketchbooks. The studio is well-lit and the north wall is covered with magnetic exhibition boards for easy and flexible displays of work.

Students studying on our Visual Arts course in summer or as part of their Liberal Arts Programme can enjoy using these facilities and have plenty of time to improve their skills, build their own portfolio and new techniques.
