The Art programme at Kellett is seen as a vital aspect of all students' development.
Art plays a valuable role in our broad and balanced curriculum. Importance of self-expression, risk-taking in a safe and suportive environment and exercising the imagination and creativity of each individual are at the heart of the lessons.
Art at Kellett is an exciting mix of investigating art from around the world, enjoying the hands-on sensory practice of using art materials and developing a personal aesthetic judgment. Much of the practical work created is linked to other areas of the curriculum, enriching the students' experience in the Art lessons while they gain a deeper understanding of history, religion, culture and science. The nature of creating art demands problem-solving skills and higher-order thinking, including analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
The art experience raises self-esteem and supports excellent working practices of regular reflection, self-assessment and modification of work.
