Each pupil receives 1 hour of Art lessons per week. We try to cover as many disciplines and techniques as possible during the 3 years pupils attend Scissett Middle School.

"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced."    Vincent Van Gogh
