Art at The Wren School, Reading, Berks

Aiming High


Aims and Ethos

Art and Design develops students’ visual vocabulary by introducing them to the world and of art. We will discover art from other times and cultures to consider what and how artists are communicating with us. Students will use a wide range of materials to experiment and reflect on what is important to them, to create their own forms of expression and unique visual outcomes.

Our aim for Art at The Wren School is to enable all students to realise their own creativity. By experimenting with a range of media we hope to develop resilient students who are unafraid of trial and error for the sake of exploring new ideas. By planning lessons that focus on a wide range of art forms and movements we hope to encourage students to observe the world around them from different perspectives.
