Arts in Kensington School

Despite the fact that it is often given greater importance during early education, the teaching of Arts is key to any moment of the student's learning.


Arts not only allow the development of creativity, they also teach young people to better understand feelings and emotions and to be sensitive to artistic and expressions of beauty.

At our school, our teachers strive to teach this subject beyond artistic techniques, delving into concepts and experiences that will accompany our students throughout their lives. Thus, in each school year we work to make each class exciting and unique, including the trips we take outside the classroom.

In 4th ESO, our Plastic and Visual Education students have been able to enjoy a visit to the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum in which we have seen The landscape in modernity, an exhibition-workshop aimed at teachers and students of Secondary Education Compulsory that proposes to reflect on the difference between landscape and nature, and the relationship of both with the human being. Our students had a lot of fun becoming Land-Art artists themselves. We can't wait to go back!

Our friends from Caixaforum have also received us to share our love for art, with the first visit of the year by our family volunteers. On this occasion, we have been able to hold a painting workshop through the organization Nadiesolo, an NGO that develops accompaniment programs for people in situations of loneliness, illness, exclusion, disability or other causes.

Inside the classroom we have also started the year on the right foot. In the 2nd year of Baccalaureate, our students are introduced to the charcoal technique from classic plaster models. We begin with the fitting and the analysis of the proportions to continue in the coming days with the study of chiaroscuro.

Like us, we invite all our parents, staff and students to join the artistic and cultural activities that take place in our community inside and outside the school.
