‘The inspiration and power of the arts play a vital role in enabling our children and young people to enhance their creative talent and develop their artistic skills.’

Welcome to the Art and Design Department at Madras College
In the Art & Design Department we provide the learners with a variety of learning opportunities, practical experience of art and design practice and encourage the pupils to develop their critical thinking by studying the works of artists and designers. Learners gain confidence in their abilities as they develop their practical skills and explore how to visually represent, communicate and express their thoughts and ideas through their work.
The senior courses enable learners to plan, develop, produce and present creative art and design work, whilst following themes of a personal choice, and they develop an understanding of the social and cultural influences on the works of artists and designers.
We are a friendly and creative department who strive to inspire all the pupils we meet to explore Art & Design and develop their own creativity.
Each year in the spring the Art & Design department organise the Sew Arty exhibition to celebrate and showcase the pupils work from S1-S6.
