At Newmarket Academy, we want our students to love art, craft and design, and photography! We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and to take career paths into being illustrators, graphic designers, fashion designers, curators, architects, photographers, journalists, or printmakers.
Our Art curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge students, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills to be able to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. As students progress, they should gain a deeper understanding of how Art and Design reflects and shapes our history, and how it contributes to the culture, creativity, and wealth of our world. We want to equip our students with elements of the Art and Design National Curriculum and to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of later life. We want our students to use the local area as inspiration, to learn from other cultures, and to respect diversity. To that end, we have carefully selected a wide range of unique and diverse artists, craft makers, and designers for students to study. Our art and design curriculum is broad and encourages students to learn new keywords and promotes reading. Students are encouraged to articulate what they are learning and how this helps mold their creative ideas and outcomes.
