The purpose-built Creative Arts Department of Ardvreck houses both the Music School and the Vibrant Art School.

Art lessons at Ardvreck transform every child’s way of seeing the world in which we live. Negative shapes become as fascinating and vital as positive shapes. Tone becomes as vivid and enriching as colour.

From Form 1 through to Form 6, children explore mark making, experimenting with the large variety of media that we offer.

They are challenged to go beyond their comfort zone, thereby creating work of originality and a standard that they did not know they were capable of achieving.

Observational skills remain the starting point from which both 2D and 3D works are created. In all seasons we work outside, directly from our beautiful surroundings. We are also inspired and challenged by visits to Galleries.

Art at Ardvreck is alive, vibrant, challenging and rewarding. As a result, a growing number of children are moving on to their next school with Art of a Scholarship level.
