Art enables the students to express themselves, develop fine motor skills, and communicate their preferences, styles and creative ideas. They learn to use a range of mediums such as charcoal, pen, acrylic, oil and water paints and paint on large canvases and on small items contributing to group work.

The students produce 2D and 3D models, use mud rock, pulp, paper Mache and clay. They use the kiln to make pottery items and decorate items which along with student art work is offered for sale as an enterprise project.

Their work has been displayed in formal Art Exhibitions within the community and in local commercial organisations as well as being firm favourites around the buildings.

Some students undertake either taster courses or part and full time courses in Art at local mainstream colleges. The Abbott Art Award is presented each year to a student whose work is voted by staff to be outstanding.
