Malet Lambert boasts a lively and progressive Art & Design department. An excellent variety of creative artwork is produced with students encouraged to use a wide range of art materials and techniques including:- print making, collage, sculpture, painting, 3D design and digital photography. Many other specialist crafts and processes are taught during weekly Art clubs and extra workshops. Students’ art work can be seen on display both in the department and around the school.
Each year group, from 7 to 11, has the opportunity to be involved in art visits and workshops, around the UK and beyond. These visits give students an insight both to the art works on display as well as the artists, designers and crafts people who have created it. In 2010 the Art Department led a cultural visit to New York taking in the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art as well as the Broadway production of Billy Elliot and a variety of famous landmarks.
In the summer term the department holds a ‘Celebration of Art’ exhibition including work from the BTEC First Certificate course. The summer 2010 exhibition took place in the Hull Truck Theatre in the centre of the city and comprised of life-sized human sculptures based on characters from John Godber plays.
