Accessing Art at NCW

At NCW, we are confident that every student can access Art. 

Tactile or visual learning plays an important part in a holistic education. The creative process is taught through practical projects – from concept and design to making and evaluation. This process is important in Art and is also beneficial for a student’s general education. Art is a popular subject at NCW and we work to make lessons informative, creative and fun!

Students Reef and Seb have loved exploring their artistic capabilities whilst at NCW, and have created some amazing pieces along the way.

Reef has studied Graphic Communication at A Level, and as his final piece has written and illustrated his own book, The Other Side.
The NCW Transcription department has produced a braille and large print copy of the story to keep in the Learning Resource Centre for other students and staff to read.

Reef is going on to study Illustration at Hereford College of Art and Design in September, which we are sure he will enjoy! Good luck Reef!

Seb has been studying Art at AS level, and is continuing with this for his A Levels in September.
He has most recently been looking at the work of Karl Blossfelt, Botanist and Photographer, made famous for his studies of plants taken in black and white showing detail.

Seb and volunteer Mr Peden have been taking photographs of flowers around college campus, adopting Blossfelt’s approach and looking at the intricate details. Seb has also taken images of seed pods in class, focusing on macro views. They look brilliant.
