Art Department Intent Statement

The Subject Lead for Art is Beth Wood

Art is a language that enriches school life and academic success, and it is part of our DNA. Art at APC encourages self-expression and creativity through a flexible curriculum where the student is at its centre and individual learning gaps and resources are tailored to meet specific needs. Creativity helps build confidence and a sense of individual identity. Art helps students develop motor skills, language skills, presentation and social skills, decision making, problem solving, risk-taking and inventiveness which can be harnessed by other subjects and the outside world. Students can work through their issues and narrate their own journey.
