Welcome to
the Art and Ceramics Department!

With so many exciting opportunities in the Art Department students enjoy a different way of learning. As they progress through the School there is more freedom to work in a personal way, but there is always help on hand from teachers and technicians to learn new skills, processes and techniques.
