At Brookhurst, Art and Design supports the development of pupil’s imagination, confidence and their ability to express their own thoughts and feelings.

The pupils learn to reflect, to develop their own ideas and opinions, to articulate and critically discuss work in a supportive and respectful way.

They learn to work independently, to collaborate, experiment and take risks, innovate and problem solve.

Learning art and design involves learning a wide range of conceptual, social and practical transferable life skills.

Art and Design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of the World.

At Brookhurst, making art and design lessons joyful encourages pupil’s growth and allows them to show integrity when reflecting on their own ideas and the ideas of others.
