Art and Design


The Art Department at Ancora in-patient site is central to the work we do with all learners, regardless of whether they are taking Art as an exam subject or just for fun. Our belief is that creativity is an integral part of being human, all of us have the capacity to succeed in the area of Arts and Crafts.

The majority of learners begin their educational journey in the Art room where they are introduced to a variety of interest led Art and Design, enabling personal and individual projects or outcomes. 

Art and Design sessions are designed to serve as a helpful and positive distraction as well as providing opportunities for learners to develop new skills and gain confidence in their new surroundings. We strive to make Art and Design accessible for all, without compromising on the quality of work produced; this is delivered through one to one and group sessions. We frequently find learners commenting that prior to coming to Ancora House School they ‘didn’t think they were any good at Art’ yet their outcomes here are often incredible.
