In the Art and Design Department learners develop practical skills as they explore how to visually represent and communicate their thoughts and ideas through their work, and study the works of artists and designers. Following a broad and general course from S1, pupils will work towards a range of SQA’s Art and Design qualifications which provide learners with a broad, practical experience of art and design practice and related critical activities.
