Art and Ceramics


Art is an important part of life at Port Regis from Year 8 down to the Pre-Prep. The children learn to draw, paint, make prints and work in three dimensions, thus gaining confidence with a wide range of media.

A wide variety of creative techniques and media all form part of a carefully structured syllabus. These include fine art, sketching, charcoal work, ink painting, acrylic and water colour painting, screen printing, lino printing, collage and mosaic.

A particular strength of ours is ceramics and children become familiar with slab and coil construction and clay modelling.

Subjects explored in recent years include:

  • African masks
  • Card sculpture
  • Fish and sea creatures
  • Flowers from the school grounds
  • Local and world architecture
  • Maritime art
  • Oriental art
  • Pop art
  • Pueblo pottery

Here are some examples of our pupil's work:
