The Prep School Art department is vibrant and engaging and Hurst pupils love to express themselves using a variety of media. Art is highly regarded at Hurst and the children take their studies very seriously.

Each pupil has the opportunity to visually explore and question the world around them, and every opportunity is taken to ensure that Art is rich and vibrant and that each pupil achieves their artistic potential. Pupils are able to embrace working in 3D construction and clay in addition to painting, drawing and printing techniques.
