Babington House School Curriculum

Senior

Co-ed aged 11 - 16



Art and Textiles

The Art Department at Babington is a thriving, dynamic area within the curriculum that constantly evolves to reflect current exhibitions and art practice.

Both Fine Art and Textile Design are taught from year 7 to year 9, with both courses offered at GCSE.

In years 7, 8 and 9 pupils study a broad range of skills and techniques. Some of the areas covered are still-life, perspective, printing and painting. In textiles pupils learn to weave, make felt, knit, stitch by hand and machine and generally design work to be translated into fabric. At all stages a multi-cultural approach is taken with an emphasis on experimentation and historical reference.

For GCSE a portfolio of work is developed, refined and modified with a strong emphasis on independent learning. Preparation for the exam is undertaken over several weeks.

Work is frequently shown at exhibitions and we have enjoyed much success in both local and national competitions.
