Visual Arts

In addition to academic study in the art department we are an open access area for students to explore their creativity. In any given week students are welcome to attend activity sessions in art regardless of their artistic talents. They will be guided through a workshop exploring a different aspect of art each week. This is designed to be fun and to further develop your practical skill base and gain a greater understanding of contemporary artwork and its place in todays’ society.

We have additional provision in place for our art scholarship students to extend their specialist interest beyond the classroom and work on more sustained pieces of art. With unique access to the Old Masters in the Stonyhurst Collections such as ‘Durer and Rembrandt’ our scholars have an opportunity to create work that takes risks and allows them to play with materials to understand what type of artist they are. This work is celebrated in exhibitions at college and external publications to inspire the next generation in the school.
