Art at King's
From the first eager scribbling in the Nursery to portraits in the Prep and to large contemporary pieces in the Sixth Form, our pupils can unlock their creative potential. The Art department at King's Rochester is hub of creativity and ingenuity. Our two large studios are used by pupils from both the Preparatory and Senior Schools working across a variety of interesting briefs and mediums.
Davies Court is the home of Art in Rochester, the specially designed high arching windows allow for even the largest of installations to be created while the natural lighting and woodland surroundings inspire our pupils every day.
The success of the Art Department is celebrated each year, not only in the excellent examination results, our pupils achieve, in 2019, Upper Sixth artists achieved 100% A* to A grades; but in the installation and displaying of their work across the School.
"I come to the studio after School so I can get my ideas down on paper quickly. Sometimes I'll draft a whole piece before I go home, and can't wait to finish it the next day"
Large pieces are displayed in the Principal's study in Satis House, in the lobby of School Hall and in areas throughout the wider School. Rochester Train Station houses a board depicting imagery of The Vines drawn by our current Remove pupils and some pieces have been submitted and displayed in the local galleries.
