Curriculum Mock Bullet section

The Art Department at Horizon boasts an array of high-quality work from students at all Key Stages. Our aim is to prepare students for success from the time when they enter Y7 right through to Y13. As such our curriculum is both supportive and challenging while giving students every opportunity to develop creatively and independently.

In Year 7 students are taught once a week. Throughout Year 7 the students are taught how to control a range of materials and how to respond to different Artists and Cultures, including developing their own designs for final outcomes. Year 7 students will explore still life projects using both oil pastel and paints, they develop a clay tile in response to Aboriginal Art, explore a range of 2D element studies and make a surreal landscape in response to a ‘cakes and sweets’ theme.
