Art & Design

The Art and Design department at the Edinburgh Academy has had a long history of producing outstanding work that has seen pupils gain entrance into the top Art Colleges in the country, win recognition in the competitive Saatchi schools competition and achieve excellent results in public examinations. The department has recently added Higher photography, which is also proving popular.

We believe that Art and Design has a central role to play in preparing all our pupils for a changing world where innovation and creativity are going to be vital skills. This year we are welcoming the Independent Schools Art and Design Association to the school for their annual conference.

This page provides examples of some of the ambitious work that has been produced, the variety of media tackled and the exciting locations we have visited.
