Dunottar has a thriving and successful Art Department. The Art Scholars’ Programme stretches and challenges our best and most talented artists to explore, to experiment and to try new techniques and experiences.
Art Scholarships are awarded to those pupils who exhibit exceptional talent in visual and creative arts.
Art Scholars benefit from the excellent teaching and facilities at Dunottar where they engage with a range of styles and media. Scholars are encouraged to develop an independent interest in art, developing their own creativity and personal style through visiting exhibitions, producing their own work outside the limitations of the curriculum, and designing and creating objects that reflect their personal interests.
The Art Scholars’ Programme is supplemented by a wide range of exciting enrichment opportunities inside and outside the school environment, networking with local working artists, competitions, museum trips and practical workshops.
