Head of Art

The Art Department develops student’s artistic skills through themed units of study. The formal elements are covered during Key Stage 3. Students have the opportunity to study Art to GCSE, A2 and IB Diploma level. All forms of Art are equally respected and students work in a wide range of media from Painting and Drawing to Textiles and Sculpture. Students are taught in an open plan, well-resourced environment. Artwork is displayed around the school. Annual Exhibitions of the Artwork of examination level students are cultural highlights for the school and local community.

Many students continue to pursue Art related courses at university level. In conjunction with the Drama Department, a biennial trip is offered to allow students experience of the Arts outside Bahrain. Additional Art Clubs are run throughout the year to allow students access to specialist resources. Set Design Club runs throughout the year and gives students the opportunity to be involved in a variety of productions and events school wide. The Art department supports the Enrichment Programme activities as well as charity and community events, affording students opportunities to apply their creative skills on a practical level.
