Art, Design & Technology
Millfield aims to meet the artistic and creative needs of all our pupils through exposure to and experience of art from a variety of sources and cultures. Our rich and varied Arts Co-Curricular programme includes:
Millfield Arts Projects – an annual series of activities, workshops and lectures in the Atkinson Gallery. Recent events have included an artist's talk, workshop and residencies by Mark Elliot Smith and Duncan Elliot; and participation in the national event, The Big Draw.
Millfield Sculpture Park – a unique sculpture collection of 29 exhibits within our extensive parkland, including large scale permanent works from artists such as Glynn Williams and Peter Randall-Page.
Sixth Form mentor programme - tutorials and portfolio advice with staff and students from universities such as the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, London, Falmouth University and City & Guilds of London Art School. Pupils can experience the works of emerging artists from the UK’s art schools first-hand in the Atkinson Gallery’s annual MA & Other Postgraduates exhibition.
The Art department also runs regular trips to London, Oxford and Berlin.
