International Summer School and Summer Camp for Girls

I liked art best. It was fun to just relax and let creativity take over.

Art, Craft and Design

One of the girls’ favourite activities at Heathfield is being in the art studios and making things to decorate their rooms and take home to parents or doing projects with friends. We always have several members of staff who are art, craft and design specialists so we can offer plenty of creative sessions.

Our teachers look at the work of artists, styles and movements in art through the decades and across the world to inspire the girls. We work in the three studios and outside, using the beautiful grounds, and link a lot of creative work to the different course themes we have each year.

Design classes and textile work on T-shirts and bags, as well as creating costumes for fashion shows and themed discos, are very popular. Girls also make scenery, signs and props for our many shows and festivals.
The art department can offer many activities but here are just a few:

  • Drawing and painting
  • Fabric design
  • Fashion design
  • Glass painting
  • Jewellery making
  • Card making
  • Textile work
  • Paper marbling
  • Silk painting
  • Watercolours with wax
  • Modelling with fimo clay
  • Papier-mâché
  • Collage
  • Dream Catchers
