Art at Wyvern is dedicated to giving students a platform to express thoughts feelings and ideas. Art is an important part of daily life and media play a great role in this. Students are encouraged to embrace technology alongside basic principles of Art, craft and design. The wealth of knowledge both in the classroom and from surrounding sources such as the internet, television, film and advertising help to keep students current in terms of learning. Art continues to be a cornerstone of learning with multiple new career paths as well as traditional design roles available to modern generations
At Wyvern students complete a series of projects in KS3 with basic drawing skills being instilled from an early age. From there students take part in both cultural and skills based projects on a variety of different themes and topics. Projects range from the contemporary to the traditional with equal measure given to both.
KS4 students are expected to complete work both in lessons and independently to refine and develop their work on a personal level. This is aided by specific drop in sessions on alternate Tuesdays as well as a general Art club which runs on a weekly basis.
