Through the Art and Art Textiles curriculum at St Edward’s Academy, we want students to experience and embody the highest forms of human creativity. We offer a high quality creative education that engages, inspires and challenges students – equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. We support students in the development of their critical thinking and understanding of art history.
We want students to experience a wide range of processes and a variety of techniques that will develop their understanding of the creative world. Students will experience a rich inspiring and challenging curriculum.
Our aim is that students progress from St Edward’s with a clear understanding of how creativity can influence their world, opening their eyes to new experiences and avenues of investigation. The successful implementation of the curriculum will impact on students’ lives, providing the foundation for lifelong skills and ways of thinking that are transferable into other areas.
Curriculum Theological Underpinnings
“He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers – all of them skilled workers and designers.”
God delighted in the practical and creative skills he has given to his people as they built the Tabernacle as a meeting place between God and humans. Art is a way to express. Create and reflect upon the beauty and wonder in God’s creation, and every student will get an opportunity to develop their talent and skills in our department.
