Creative media is taught with a passionate and holistic approach Chatsworth High School and Community College. Art is a great stimulus for cognitive and personal development and every child matters is a fundamental part of the ethos here.
Creative media offers a broad, fun and exciting experience where they are able to explore visual, tactile and other sensory experiences in order to communicate ideas and meanings. Pupils investigate, decide, conclude and assess, encountering a variety of media, developing in confidence, imagination and creativity.
In Creative Media, pupils reflect on their own and other people’s work. Learning about art in the world around us is important. Pupils learn to think and act as artists, craftspeople and designers, working creatively and intelligently. Pupils are challenged, with emphasis placed upon process and the skills learnt. Giving ownership and allowing independence and choice making can only add to life long learning and independent life skills.
