Welcome to the Art and Design Department.
In the Art and Design Department pupils will have the opportunity to explore and experiment with a wide range of materials and creative tasks. The curriculum follows SQA and Curriculum for Excellence guidelines and is designed to offer pupils a vibrant and varied learning experience.
At every opportunity pupils are given the chance to develop their creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills. Pupils will also learn to use Art and Design as a platform for expressing and communicating their ideas, thoughts and emotions.
Through participating in a wide range of projects, pupils will also learn about artists, designers and the wider world and will develop skills and knowledge which will assist them across their wider learning and within everyday life. Many projects also have a strong focus on developing skills and knowledge within Global Citizenship, Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Well Being.
