Art at Channing
This exceptional department has a Fine Art ethos comprising five specialist teachers, who are practising artists, and two part-time technicians. Work is undertaken in four specialist studios. Years 7-9 are taught in small groups; GCSE groups can be up to 15 in size, though rarely so. The main focus of the department is driven and underpinned by the study and practice of drawing and painting. Specialist printmaking facilities exist in order to explore possibilities in engraving, drypoint, lino and woodcut, silkscreen and relief. Sculpture, ceramics and 3D work is also extensive and possibilities exist to construct using wire or willow and cast and carve plaster, as well as using varied mixed media sources. Textile resources are also extensive and we have sewing machines and associated media. All studios are equipped with dedicated Apple computer areas and we have a fully equipped darkroom for traditional photography.
At Channing School girls enjoy success without undue pressure, on a beautiful site in Highgate, North London. Our distinctive Unitarian ethos of kindness, respect and tolerance underpins a happy, busy community.
