Woodlands High School



Art & Design

Art stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences that present a unique way to communicate and understand others, and respond to the world cultures.

Pupils learn about the place of Art and design in daily life, through history and across world cultures. Pupils learn to develop many transferable skills and critical thinking.
