The art department at St John’s Prep aims to broaden the boys’ understanding of art by moving away from a conventional approach of a craft-based curriculum to a more pro-active one, allowing the boys to develop their imaginations and creativity.

The art curriculum focuses intensely of the experiential side of different media. The boys have the opportunity to work with a variety of media, as well as develop their understanding of important art concepts and history. The aim is for boys to be given both the skills and the knowledge to understand and appreciate art. As these skills grow, the boys are given the freedom to envisage and create their own work. This enables them to learn more about themselves and to be able to value their own and others’ individuality.

We aim to foster and encourage creativity, learning about art and the artist’s role and responsibility to society. For this reason the art curriculum is not only challenging, but also a great deal of fun.
