Art and Design Technology

Some of our recent works of art

The Art and DT department work closely with Music, Drama and Food Technology to build a collaborative curriculum. We have strong links with our local community, particularly in Watchet, where many of our students come from. We work with Arts Quay and visit regularly for workshops. We are currently planning our annual art exhibition at East Quay.


Our intent for the Danesfield Curriculum in Art and DT is:

At Danesfield we believe that Art is a vital and integral part of a student’s education. It provides them with opportunities to develop a range of ways in which they can share and express their individual creativity. Art contributes to children’s personal development in creativity, independence, and self-reflection. The Art Curriculum at Danesfield aims to increase students’ confidence and proficiency in using a range of materials, techniques and processes. It encourages and supports experimentation and risk taking, to allow students to both enjoy and take ownership of their creative journey and personal development. Skills are revisited and built upon each year to enable all students to access the curriculum at the level of challenge which is appropriate to them. Practical skills are developed alongside the exploration of a range of themes which students can engage with both personally and creatively. Alongside the development of practical skills and conceptual understanding, is an integral focus on the creative journey through historical and contemporary art.
