Curriculum Art


Becoming Artists and Designers at Five Islands Academy

Within the art and design department it is our intention to ensure that our students learn how to express themselves through their artwork by recording from real life, imagination and memory. We offer opportunities for our students to explore and develop their own ideas and to use their hobbies and interests wherever possible to inspire.

With the focus on drawing and painting as a starting point, the curriculum is designed to stimulate creative thinking and visual awareness through the use of new processes, materials and techniques.

All studies will reference historical and cultural themes and all students will be encouraged to build their self-confidence through self-expression.
