Art

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity.

At Eaton House Belgravia Prep our high-quality art and design curriculum engages, inspires and challenges the boys, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.

As the boys progress, they become able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They also will also come to learn how art and design reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

The boys produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. They become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.

Evaluation and analysis of creative works using the language of art, craft and design is part of the process. Over time, the boys come to know about great artists, craft makers and designers. This allows them to understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

Our aim

The main aim of the Art department is to deliver a well-balanced and rich art education to every boy, developing a genuine enjoyment and curiosity in the artistic creative process. By the time the boys leave Eaton House we aim to have introduced them to as many working practices as possible, offering them challenging activity and sophisticated learning, preparing them for the wonderful opportunities on offer at their senior schools.
