Welcome to the Queen's Dance department
The Art department at Queen's has an expressive, creative ethos which is supported by lively and dynamic teaching at all levels of study. Based in a light and airy studio, the department aims to stimulate and foster individual development through a wide range of activities including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, construction and textiles.
The department emphasises contextual studies as an integral element in all its courses and values sketchbook-based research as an essential tool in the creative process for pupils of all ages. We have a wide range of activities on offer to all year groups which include lunchtime clubs, workshops with visiting art specialists, outside speakers and trips. There is a strong creative tradition at Queen's with Art and Design always being a popular choice at both GCSE and A-level.
Students are offered life drawing workshops, a practical weekend workshop in Suffolk and regular after school visits to galleries. Many students go on to prestigious Foundation courses, either before pursuing an academic route at university or in preparation for a degree course in one of the many areas of Art and Design.
Art scholarships are offered at both 11+ and 16+.
