Art & Design

Art and Design at BSN stimulates creativity and imagination. Lessons provide visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a unique way of understanding and responding to the world.

In their weekly lessons, students learn to use colour, form, texture, pattern and different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think.

They explore ideas and meanings in the work of artists, craftspeople and designers. They learn about the diverse roles and functions of art, craft and design in contemporary life, and in different times and cultures.
