Our intent at Bridge Academy West is to give every young person the opportunity to learn practically about art, craft and design and make art creativity accessible for all. We aim to encourage students to extend, explore and expand their creative thinking and problem solving skills, to inspire students by introducing them to artists, craftspeople, designers and movements in art. We study a variety of art made across different time periods, cultures, and countries, broadening student knowledge and understanding.
Our journey begins with an introduction to materials and techniques. Students continue to develop different skills and experiment with their creative ideas. At the end of year 9 students have the choice to continue with Art, Craft and Design.
