Art and Design

Welcome to Evelyn Grace Academy’s Art and Design Department

It is the goal of this Department to encourage all learners to achieve their own creativity, self-expression and to take ownership of our visual culture. Art and Design should foster visual learning of each student.

We want to create a “learning zone by a doing environment in which all lessons will encourage students to learn by providing lots of practical opportunities by providing a ‘learning’ by ‘doing’ model. 

Our Head of Department is Mr Gayle
