Welcome to the Art Department

Students who study Art and Design at HLC will be successful, enthusiastic, and resilient and produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. 
Students will become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture graphic and textile design techniques. 
Students will be inquisitive.  They will enjoy learning about great contemporary and traditional artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.  
Students will learn to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design. They will develop an ability to interpret, make judgments and express opinions and show respect for the work others.  
Students will be inspired by the way, in which art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. 
Our team aim to create a learning environment in which students feel they belong and are safe and supported in their creative journey.
