Blundell’s Prep School has a light, modern, well-resourced art room, which offers an excellent environment in which the children can be both confident and creative.
The children are offered opportunities to experiment with a variety of media and work at a range of scales. They have benefitted from the experience of working with visiting artists as well as having regular opportunities to draw from real life.
