Art education has a major responsibility for some important aspects of a child’s development - those which have intellectual, personal and social significance and strong links with the sensual and emotional life of the individual.

At Shoreham College we celebrate the creativity of our students’ work; their imaginative and enthusiastic responses enable them to produce original and diverse outcomes.

Through key stages 3 and 4, students have the opportunity to work across a range of media and techniques which include painting, drawing, 3D sculpture, clay, printmaking and textiles. Specialist art is taught in our vibrant and uniquely adapted space.
