Visual communication is at the core of the Art curriculum, a transferable skill that enriches all our lives. The Art Department is committed in its pursuit of excellence in the field of art and design.
At Nobel we provide a stimulating environment for a variety of exciting and creative experiences. Art is planned and delivered to support the development of this visual language and ensures continuity and progression throughout all stages of the curriculum.
We aim to increase student confidence and give them a greater understanding of themselves. We recognise that each student is an individual and aim to nurture creativity in a fun and engaging way so that all our students can improve their skills and enjoy some measure of success in art and design.
We embrace cultural diversity and our students are encouraged to consider the world around them and develop their work in an individual way based on their own experiences of it. We promote experimental attitudes and approaches through a wide range of practical skills.
At Nobel we are fortunate to be able to offer our students three areas of specialism including general art and design, graphic communication and textiles, all up to A level. These are supported by facilities including three purpose built art rooms, a suit of Apple Mac computers and a specialist textile studio.
Assessment of the work at all stages is based on the student’s creative journey. This journey is richly supported by extra-curricular activities including trips, visiting artists, competitions, community projects.
Student achievement at GCSE and A Level is celebrated by the whole school community with a final exhibition which show cases their emerging talent.
We are proud that our art students, on leaving, are in a strong position to pursue a career in the visual arts, many at prestigious art schools.
