Art is the desire of a person to express themselves, to record the reactions of their personality to the world they live in.  – Amy Lowell


The aim of Art & Design at The Orchard Centre is to give students the opportunity to experiment, create, make and produce a variety of art work using a wide range of techniques and materials. This is achieved through 2 dimensional projects with a grounding in the basic art skills of drawing and painting, printing and textiles, as well as 3 dimensional projects looking at shape, form and texture. Projects will include elements of Art History, looking at artists new and old as well as influences from world cultures.








Projects are designed for students of all abilities working individually and working as a group. Projects vary and are based around 3 themes; Personal, Environmental and Cultural. They will cover:

  • Observation and Experimentation

  • Imagination and Expression

  • Designing and Making

The key skills that are assessed in Art & Design are:

  • Exploring

  • Investigating

  • Analysing

  • Evaluating
