Art is in a light-filled room and adored by pupils. We watched Year 8 pupils learning how to accurately put together a painted self-portrait with some impressively successful results.

Why Study Art?

The art department forms the visual heart of King's College Prep School, where children are encouraged to think creatively and imaginatively, to develop enquiring minds, and to work with a wide range of media and equipment to create 2D and 3D, as well as digital and computer manipulated projects.

Pupils are given the opportunity to explore an exciting and varied curriculum which embraces, amongst many topics, cultural and identity themes. It is underpinned by contextual studies, exploring artists, craftspeople and designers from a broad spectrum of art movements. This enables pupils to make informed judgements between their own work and that of others.


The Art Room

The Art Room also welcomes children to enjoy a multitude of co-curricular activities, holding weekly art clubs for both juniors and seniors, and ensuring that all age ranges and abilities are enabled to pursue individual passions and talents. From drawing, painting, papier maché and murals to scenery painting for school productions, the Art Room is constantly busy.

Art is a whole school experience; Pre-Prep get involved in Arts Week and Year 8 pupils attend an arts workshop at King's College to work on a major theme.
