Art & Design
At KS4 students have the option of studying Art & Design in three areas.
This is a general course which encourages students to use a range of different materials and approaches, including Painting, Photography and Mixed Media. Students will look at contemporary and traditional arts from a variety of cultures. Students will explore a range of contextual themes.
Print and photography
Students will focus on the use of photography alongside collage and print. In this area students will learn new skills in using Digital SLR camera’s to produce high quality outcomes and explore a range of different contextual themes.
In Textiles students will be encouraged to explore a range of different textile materials and develop skills in Batik, stencilling and sowing in the context of contemporary textile practice. They will explore a range of diverse themes and students will produced personalised outcomes.
In all these areas student progress will be supported by Gallery visits and input from practicing artists. Students will also have the opportunity to gain an understanding of curatorship and have their work displayed at the Islington Museum through our annual SIXMIX exhibition of GCSE artwork.
Cubitt Education which is linked to our local Cubitt Gallery works closely with EGA to organise exhibitions, educational visits and mentoring.
The Cubitt Young Artist scheme allows students to work with other artists and practitioners outside of the school environment to further develop their practice and create links with St Martins College of Art which is situated locally. Cubitt Education also have an impressive range of links with big business and Arts organisations which has led to students displaying work in modern corporate spaces giving students a glimpse into the world of Big Business and art practice.
