Creative Arts and Technology for the 21st Century
At Laude International College, students at every level of ability are encouraged to join in Food Technology, Music, Dance, Drama and the Arts. All gain confidence as they explore different areas of self-expression and some discover unsuspected talents. Although this may lead some to follow academic courses to GCSE, extra-curricular involvement in all forms of performance is open to anyone. A number decide to maintain their creativity by studying a related course at university, art college or drama school.
The Creative Arts and Technology Carousel gives every Secondary School student in years 7-9, a unique opportunity to experience, Drama, Music, Food Technology and Digital Photography. The student studies each subject in blocks of 7-8 weeks, with a final option to choose their favourite subject.
Art and Design
The Art Department occupies light and spacious accommodation in which students learn the techniques of drawing and painting as well as other skills including relief printing, the principles of ceramics and other forms of artistic expression. Art is a part of the curriculum for all children up to Year 9. Thereafter, it is a popular GCSE option and A-level.
At GCSE the students are taught skills, methods and processes, and at A-level they begin to explore their own creative instincts whilst coaxing a high degree of skill. They are introduced to both contemporary and historically great artists whose work is used to inspire students’ ideas and ambitions. Through diligent and informed investigation, the students develop art works which are potent both in terms of their skill and ingenuity.
