Kate Ward A2 study


"Unquenchable curiosity" and "inventive imagination" are the skills we would like all our students to come away from the department with.

We like to think that the Art Department at King Edwards is an open and stimulating place in which to work.

We have tried to create a relaxed but business like atmosphere where pupils of all ages can come and develop their creative capabilities in both formal and informal situations.

The studios have been designed to facilitate an open and interactive learning environment and we try, within the constraints of other School commitments, to keep an 'open door' policy throughout the working day and beyond. We often have as many as fifty students in the studios during the lunch hour. After school we run Partnership sessions with local primary schools, Character Design Club, Architecture Society and Life Drawing for the VI form. 

The department comprises a main painting studio, sculpture studio, Dedicated Art Computer Suite running Adobe Creative Suite, print studio, Sixth Form studio, kiln room and office/library containing over 3000 titles.
