Amazing Art from St Anselm's

Curriculum Intent Statement
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” Edgar Degas “Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.”
Higher Level Scheme of Work
Art: Year 12 SOW
Photography: Year 12 SOW
This is a lively and exciting department run by the Curriculum Leaders Mrs McKnight and Ms Stone, with specialist teacher Miss Penfold and technician Miss Pettet.
There are three specialist teaching rooms, kilns, a dark room and studio space used by the A Level students. The Schemes of Work are designed to build on the student’s prior learning and introduces them to new techniques, such as ceramics, graffiti, 3D construction, printing, painting and drawing skills. Taking risks and finding out the best materials to use for ideas is the basis for development and investigation, as well as sharing thoughts and opinions with each other. All pupils are encouraged to develop their work in relation to research into other artist's work and use sketchbooks and cameras to record images and ideas. GCSE and GCE students go to London and local art galleries, such as Margate, to visit art galleries and attend workshops.
Students frequently enter competitions and take part in local art events. The exam board have commented on the exemplary end of year show of the students' work. We are proud of the standard of student work and many continue their art studies into Higher and Further education. Many have gone on to highly successful careers in the arts. We are lucky that our students return to St. Anselm’s to talk about their work and to run workshops. Practicing artists are an important part of the creative experience for students.
