Art Ethos

Art at The Willows is essential for developing confidence and self-expression. It is a powerful tool – allowing students to communicate and express their thoughts and feelings about the world around them and their own internal world.

Art is a “can do” practical subject nurtured by an inspiring, calm classroom atmosphere which allows students to progress as artists.

At The Willows, students combine observational skills with development of ideas and concepts to cultivate their own personal style. At every stage, students have maximum flexibility with materials to enable an innovative, exploratory approach.

Individual responses and diversity are celebrated as there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to create a piece of art work.

At The Willows, students gain confidence and learn to take pride in the work they create.
