ART at Bales Independent School

Studying Art & Design at Bales exposes children to a variety of techniques including drawing, painting, sculpture, printing and ceramics. The quality of artwork produced by students across all year groups is outstanding – some images are shown below. Each child is encouraged to explore and experiment while developing their technical art-making skills.
