Tottington High School


If you have creative and artistic abilities, through studying art you will develop them in much greater depth, while extending your skills to a higher level. It is an exciting practical skills based subject, working with a variety of media.


What Will I Learn in Art?

In Art you will improve your observation and objective drawing. Explore your own personal ideas imaginatively in visual and tactile studies. You will learn more about the work of other Artists, Craftsmen and Designers and understand the influence they have on your own work. You will use a variety of materials and techniques to express your ideas and learn how to modify and improve work as it progresses. You will use all your planning, research and development of ideas to produce a successful piece of artwork and gain more confidence in your knowledge about Art in our society and around the world. You will learn to work independently and creatively.

Photographic response to the collage artist Raku Inoue’s work

Lily carefully arranged rose petals to create this beautiful collage before adding extra drawn details to the left “wing”. The resulting photograph is a striking image and is an exceptional piece of independent work . Well done Lily
