Art is a visual means by which people are able to communicate thoughts through feelings, which necessitates the interaction of the spectator.
At Hampton Pre-Prep & Prep, we aim to produce aesthetically aware, visually literate and confident members of society and, to this end, the children have the opportunity to gain an understanding and appreciation of the work of artists both past and present. Visits to art galleries are an integral and important part of this process. The art department ensures the school environment is exciting and visually stimulating and values each child’s work.
The most essential ingredient in the art programme is the child.
The children are encouraged to express their individuality, articulate and communicate ideas, and feel comfortable in expressing opinions about their own work and that of others.
