The vision is to provide opportunities for students to create a wide variety of work with detailed explorations in media such as painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. Students will be introduced to relevant artists and art styles and will learn to compare, analyse, evaluate and discuss their own work as well as the work of others.

Students are tracked on the skills they are learning through the year. They have set targets they will work towards achieving across the years they are here at KSA. Each student will be made aware of their target and how they can progress.
Quizzes in art are there to test student knowledge and application of this knowledge. Students will be regularly assessed on how well they know keywords and processes.
Art is part of the enrichment programme for Upper and Middle School. During this time students have an activity/project which they complete. Students develop their art skills and learn new techniques.
Art activity takes place every day for half an hour in Middle School. Students can select to take part in art activity if they feel they want to focus on their art class work or create something new during this time.
After school - Studio
The art department is open after school and students can choose to come to work in the space using all art materials. GCSE students use the space as their own workshop to complete work daily and book in meetings with Miss Panayides during this time for 1:1 guidance.
