The Art department at Repton is particular in that all the teachers are practicing artists specialising in painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, printmaking and textiles.
Our facilities include:
- Five studio spaces
- Light Room
- Dark Room
- Ceramics Studio
- Design Studio
- Textiles Studio
- Two modern gallery exhibition spaces
- State-of-the-art IT facilities including 4D printers
Our Artist in Residence scheme augments this by attracting young and emerging artists, usually fresh from their MA at the most prestigious Universities, to come to Repton and share their practice. It is designed to inject the most up-to-date developments in contemporary art into teaching and learning and demonstrate to the pupils the possibilities of a career in the arts.
Our current Artist in Residence is Tom Voyce (2017 winner of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year). Mr Voyce teaches our pupils alongside our full-time staff for half of each week and is encouraged to further his practice in the studio provided for the other half, presenting this work to pupils and exhibiting it in our two School Galleries during his tenure.
