Art

Rokeby Art is brought to life in our excellent facilities, which enable a variety of processes and techniques to be covered.

Boys are able to explore a range of arts including printmaking, ceramic work, photography, mixed media and textiles, alongside more traditional drawing and painting skills.

We ensure critical and contextual studies are integrated within a strong practical framework. Above all, boys leave Rokeby with confidence in their own personal response and a growing understanding of different art concepts.

Boys are encouraged to attend Art clubs and nurture a deep love of the subject. We make special arrangements to help boys who wish to sit an Art Scholarship for a senior school. We also arrange visits to art galleries for several year groups. The subject is taught through thematic enquiry and where appropriate, topics link to other subject areas.

In recent years our boys have achieved Art scholarships to Epsom College, Hampton School and Reed’s School.
