Here, at St John’s Beaumont, the fundamental belief is that every boy has some level of creative ability and it is therefore our aim to foster this creativity in as wide a manner as possible whilst also instilling a lasting interest in and appreciation in the History of the subject.
The Aims of the Art School are:
Boys receive weekly art lessons throughout the School during which they are taught the skills and techniques of drawing and painting.
Every boy has the opportunity to exhibit in the Annual Art Exhibition which is held in the Summer Term. The Art Clubs are always popular and students are encouraged to attend these after-school activities in order to further their studies and complete additional work for their portfolios.
Apart from the timetabled classes the Art School also provides evening classes, holiday courses and individual tuition for those students who are particularly keen to pursue their studies in the subject.
Over the past 10 years the Art School has assisted numerous students in obtaining Top Art Scholarships to their senior schools.
