Art forms an essential and successful part of the curriculum at Carterton Community College and is taught in positive and enjoyable lessons in Years 7 to 13 for all students. We try to create a caring and supportive environment for our students to gain skills and grow both culturally and artistically. We encourage our students to take ownership of their work and learn to take pride in every piece of work they produce on both an individual level and as part of a team in group based projects. Regular homework in Art should be an hour a fortnight at Key Stage 3 and a minimum of 1 hour a week at Key Stage 4. Key Stage 5 homework consists of independent learning outside of the classroom. This could be up to 9 hours a fortnight in addition to lesson time.
