Art and Design

Art and Design

Offering a rich and challenging artistic journey through a free and adventurous approach.

Art and Design is a popular and successful subject at Ipswich School. We inspire our students to go on to study Foundation, Fine Art, Fashion or
Textiles, Architecture, Graphic Design and Product Design degrees when they leave. Alongside lessons and weekly Art clubs, studio space is made available throughout the day for all A Level students, who are a great inspiration to the Lower School pupils.

At JSS Class work is based on themes that cover the basic elements of line, shape, colour, tone and texture. Pupils enjoy working with a range of materials including paint, print, drawing, collage, mixed media, ceramics, sculpture, textiles and ICT.

The SSS Art class encourages an adventurous and enquiring approach to Art using powers of observation and analytical skills. Projects build on skills gained earlier in the school. Pupils study drawing and painting techniques, printmaking, digital manipulation, textiles and sculpture and may specialise in one of these areas. We aim to make pupils confident, expressive and independent artists, whose work is fuelled by their passions and experiences in life.

Drawing is a vital part of all projects undertaken across all years. We strive to improve students’ drawing skills through imaginative tasks and stimulating workshops and to ignite in them a passion for drawing. From September all students are involved in a still-life project based on installations created by Art staff during the summer holiday. This enables the students to create different outcomes based on direct observation. This is challenging and exciting for all and provides a lively and enjoyable start to the course. During the year students experience art first-hand by visiting galleries and working with our artist-in-residence.


Through expressive and theoretical studies the SSS Level course offered by HarryField in Art and Design leads to a fuller understanding of the visual arts. Emphasis is put on the importance of recording the creative process through samples and a work journal tracking the development of ideas.
