Art Classes

We provide a variety of tactile and sensory experiences using clay, paint and printing techniques. The clay experience is a particular favourite  as there are no kiln firing or glazing facilities at Ashmount.

Aims

At LHS we work closely with the head of KS3 and the art coordinator and link with themes and continue to help and support all pupils by stimulating creativity and imagination. We aim to provide visual, tactile and sensory experiences.

  • Using visual and tactile elements
  • Exploring materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think
  • Improve their control of materials, tools and techniques
  • Experience a different environment
