The First Academy's Art department is superbly resourced and provides opportunities to work in a wide range of media, techniques, and approaches.

Specialist teaching from active and experienced teachers is offered in painting, printmaking, 3-D design, DIY crafts, ceramics, and digital art.

Students can develop and explore their own personal responses in these areas, taking diverse forms such as video installation, textile-based sculpture, mixed media printmaking, ceramics, and traditional art media.

Whether it is building a portfolio for university admissions, exploring a new media, or developing their creative reasoning and problem solving, our students always find a multitude of benefits from our art classes and supportive art teachers.
