Art & Design
Art and Design at Aberdour encourages creativity and imagination. We provide visual, tactile and sensory opportunities for our students, in a relaxing and fun environment. Pupils use colour, form, texture, pattern and different materials to explore what they feel, see and think of the world around them. Through creativity, they learn to make asthetic and practical decisions, thus enabling them to become confident, independent learners.
Our students have the freedom to challenge ideas and shape their creative journey. They study the work and ideas of artists, sculptors and designers, as well as collaborating with visiting artists on projects which enrich our students learning experience.
We have a designated Art Studio and Design & Technology lab, allowing children to work with a variety of mediums. We invite a number of different artists to run workshops in either painting, wire sculpture or willow weaving, to name a few. We host an annual light show that incorporates showcasing the art and sculptures.
