The Art Department at Roedean is a busy and energetic hub of creativity, where girls are encouraged to experiment and explore their ideas.
The result of this approach is seen in the girls’ diverse and truly creative work.
Students in Years 7 to 9 become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design. In lessons, the girls gain knowledge of great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of art. Co-curricular clubs and workshops allow the girls to explore their ideas through traditional and new media.
In the GCSE Course, girls become familiar with a range of creative processes, including printmaking, sculpture and three-dimensional media, textiles, fashion design and lens-based media.
The Art Department offers a range of courses to allow our students to tailor their A Level Art experience towards a broad range of Higher Education courses and exciting creative careers. Offering Art, Photography and Textiles, as well as a Foundation Art, Design and Media BTEC, our Art students have gone on to a range of destinations and careers, such as Architecture, Fashion, and Product Design at Central St Martins.
