Thorns Art Department is a welcoming and vibrant hub of activity. We have excellent facilities ranging from Photoshop, Animation packages to a specialist clay studio and kiln. There are two main Art rooms both fully equipped with resources for a wide range of Art practices.
Why study Art? Art stimulates both sides of the brain and allows students to learn to use their senses. We aim to teach our students to think openly and have the confidence to try out new ideas and opinions. Art gives students the chance to learn how to think critically, as most questions about Art have no specific answer or solutions. Our students learn how to work as a team to collaborate and build on others ideas often resulting in large group Art pieces.
The internet has created an explosion of opportunity for digital designers and multi-media artists, therefore our role in delivering the skills students need for today’s society are paramount.
