Philosophy of Art

Art at Roedean is a very exciting prospect for our pupils.

Parents frequently tell us that it ‘was not like this’ at their school when they were young. Now, pupils are offered such an exciting range of materials and possible project outcomes, their mouths are watering before they begin!

Within Art and Design we offer a huge range of techniques from painting and drawing to ceramics, constructed textiles, graphic design, illustration, CAD, printmaking and photography.

We are also developing a partnership with SCAD in Atlanta whose expertise in 3D and digital media makes them the ‘go to’ graduates for Disney and Pixar. 

In the three on-site studios, we run an unusual unendorsed programme of study for GCSE, AS and A2s. That means that for AS and A2, each candidate takes two options out of a possible three areas of study: Painting and Drawing, Graphic Design and 3D.

In effect, this gives each pupil a totally bespoke programme of work.
