Art

Art at Sir John Leman High School is a popular and exciting subject and attracts students who wish to be actively engaged in the pursuit of original and ambitious work, explore working with different media and develop their own personal creativity.  The department offers traditional teaching of the essential skills of drawing and painting to help students develop confidence in their work and encourages them to explore a range of approaches to the subject.  As a department we believe very strongly in encouraging pupils to develop their own personal styles of working and then to produce work that is a reflection of their own creative imaginations.  We seek to encourage a love of the visual arts in all of its forms and aim to inspire students with a wish to explore the creative process independently.

The department is spread over 2 teaching rooms and a sixth form studio, and is frequently used by students for extra curricular work. Art Clubs take place every week and include a range of activities e.g. clay and print making.
