Art and Design

The Art and Design Department is part of the Expressive Arts Faculty staffed with 1 full time and 3 part time teachers and a part time School Support Assistant.

Our facilities, with excellent views over the River Forth and Edinburgh city, comprise 3 fully equipped teaching studios, one ceramics studio complete with electric kiln and one screen printing room. 

In Art and Design we encourage personal expression of feelings and ideas and believe that involvement in the visual arts helps students to develop valuable transferable life skills.  We provide opportunities for all students to participate in challenging and inspiring activities that enrich their everyday lives. This is further underpinned by an Art Club for S1 and S2 and Support Study classes every evening for all pupils following a certificate course.

Pupils follow progressive, activity-based courses structured to develop their creative and expressive abilities as well as learning about the work of respected Artists and Designers.

All S1 pupils visit the National Gallery of Scotland with other gallery visits offered periodically to senior pupils. We regularly make entries in nationwide art and design competitions and encourage students to show, display and evaluate their own work. Why not pop in to see the range of work?
