Additional Materials/Equipment required:

We supply art materials to the students but it is always good to have your own sets. Pencils, sketching and coloured, watercolour paints are the basics. We sell comprehensive art kits in the school shop that are a very good quality and much cheaper than on the high street. Please enquire with your art teacher.

Home Support:

Homework and research is very important as a developmental tool in Art. Please encourage your daughter to complete her homework thoroughly and hand it in by the due date. We recommend pupils begin their homework the night it is set. Basic equipment such as colour pencils and glue will help pupils to complete their homework. Pupils will also greatly benefit from visiting Art/Photography Galleries/Exhibitions regularly. Some examples of interesting galleries include the Tate Modern, Tate Britain and Saatchi Gallery.
