Art, Design and Photography

Art, design and photography at Colston’s is an experience which enhances and encourages pupils’ own creative responses and experiences. We develop our pupils’ artistic skills in an expressive and intuitive way. All work is a personal response to a theme and is chosen to promote and encourage creative, free thinking individuals.

The skills acquired within the department can then be applied to other subject areas, whether or not the pupil continues with art to GCSE or A-Level.

Pupils have the opportunity to study in large, spacious, purpose built art studios, with the added benefit of an IT suite running industry standard software (Photoshop, Illustrator etc.) and a darkroom facility. Pupils have excellent resources at their disposal with printmaking, photography and sculpture on offer.
