Art

The Extension Art activity seeks to provide interested students with the opportunity to further extend their knowledge of art and their attendant skill base. The program is available to boys in Years 7 to 12 and is held during after-school workshops that are delivered by the School's Art teachers or outsourced experts.

Typical activities include photography (Photography Club), tonal drawing (Omega HB Society), and digital media (Digital Media Group). The courses usually run for four or five weeks during T erms 1, 2, 3 and 4 with exhibitions often held at the end of courses. Parents will be invited to see the work created.

Head of Art, Ms Angela McCormack, coordinates these activities.
