The Art Department is a lively, popular and creative hub within Greenhill School. The study of art is a journey of exploration and our aim is to undertake projects that stretch the appreciation and understanding of the aesthetic, technical and conceptual aspects of art.
Our Studio consists of three rooms, two teaching rooms and a Sixth Form studio. These include fine art, ceramics, textiles, print making, IT and photography facilities.
All of our Art staff are respected artists in their own right and contribute to a friendly and dynamic teaching environment.
