Art & Design
Curriculum Leader: Mr T. Rigg
We have a lively and successful Art & Design department at Fulford. Students enjoy their art lessons and create a multitude of outcomes from exciting starting points and themes. The majority of our students, who study the subject at ‘A’ level, continue to further and higher education and to careers in the creative industry.
The Art department has now moved into the new and exciting Frida Kahlo block (k-Block) and we are lucky to have 4 large, specialist art rooms on the first floor. The space in the K-block is amazing and the corridors provide ample room to show the stunning artwork that our students produce. We also have use of a computer room, a digital photo studio, a sixth form work area and a kiln for ceramics.
Each teacher brings their own interests and experience to provide a rich and varied experience for our students. We offer a wide range of expertise, including painting, printmaking, 2D and 3D design, ceramics, photography and art history. We encourage all students to use the art rooms at lunch times and to work on their art and design at home. We also plan for them to visit galleries and exhibitions and we invite artists into school to work directly with our students.
