Our Art & Design Team

An Introduction to Art & Design

The Ribblesdale Key Stage 3 curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.  Pupils become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.  They evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design.  They are introduced to great artists, craft makers and designers and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms

Key Stage 4 - GCSE Art and Design / Textiles

With two components, comprising a ‘Portfolio’ selected from the course of study and an ‘Externally set assignment’, the specification provides our pupils with a range of creative, exciting and stimulating opportunities to develop and explore their personal interests in Art and Design and Textiles.

Vibrant and dynamic, this qualification gives our pupils the freedom to develop their own ideas and experiment in a variety of media that inspire and bring out the best in all our pupils, whilst equipping them with the skills to continue the subject with confidence at AS, A-level and beyond.
