Art and Photography
The Art department at Brooke Weston is a lively and visually stimulating environment where students are encouraged to be at their imaginative and skilful best.
Our team of three dedicated Art teachers and a technician deliver a curriculum which covers the whole range of artistic activity from painting and drawing to three dimensional construction, ceramics, printmaking, digital and traditional photography and even touches on animation. In addition to our painting and printmaking equipment, photographic dark room, potters’ wheels, and kilns, our department boasts more than four dozen computers equipped with professional quality Art and Photography software, including Photoshop.
We are very proud of the impressive results our students achieve at GCSE and A Level; the subject is a popular option and students from our Art courses have gone on to pursue careers in Architecture, Illustration, Fashion Design, Photography, Computer-Aided Design and Fine Art among many other Art-related vocations. These accomplishments are founded upon a wide-ranging and exciting curriculum which begins in Year 7 and progressively provides students with all the skills and techniques they need to succeed at GCSE and A Level.
As an Art Department we want to inspire and build creativity within our students to give them the skills and knowledge to develop a passion and understanding of art, craft and design. To foster independence and confidence in the subject to allow students to enjoy expressing their ideas by exploring all media in Art.
