Creative & Performing Arts

Learning through and about the Creative Arts enriches the experience of studying while at college as well as preparing students for life after school. Tate Gallery London states “Studying any of the creative subjects significantly boosts student achievement. Students that integrate arts into their options show improved student performance in Maths, English, critical thinking and verbal skills.” Skills you will  develop during all our creative options include creative thinking, independence, problem solving, hand-eye coordination and communication. Arts subjects encourage self-expression and creativity and can build confidence as well as a sense of individual identity. Creativity can also help with wellbeing and improving health and happiness by getting a balance across your college day, a chance to reflect, make and enjoy. Many students who study creative subjects at Colegsirgar have commented that creative  lessons acted as an outlet for releasing the pressures of studying as well as those of everyday life.

Studying a creative option can also help with developing skills and ways of working that will benefit you in the future in whatever career you choose. The umbrella of Creative Arts and Design covers several courses including photography, media, graphic design and art, craft and design. These creative subjects are now seen as a vital component of education due to the many benefits it offers students and individuals. Pursuing subjects in the Arts allows students to truly develop their creativity skills, one of the most sought-after traits by employers today as it leads to innovative thinking so that people can think out-of-the-box and come up with new solutions. So, when you graduate, your prospects are not limited as you have the skills to be a valuable employee across different fields and industries. The range of occupations students can pursue is vast. From illustration to TV production, teaching to museum curating, artist, community worker, fashion designer, graphic designer, illustrator, textile manufacturer, advertising executive, multimedia worker and web designer.

Creativity is essential in a global economy that needs a workforce that is knowledgeable, imaginative and innovative. No matter what specialisation, you take  in art, media, graphic design or photography. This diversity of subjects will make you a more open-minded person and keeps you engaged, allowing you to soak up more information. This is perhaps why the creative subjects are so popular in Colegsirgar as alternative options to mix with more traditional A-levels.
