Year 8 - Art History 

We invite students to investigate the implicit and explicit presence of black people in art, music and the media. 

Black People are cultural innovators, contributing and driving art forms around the world - yet we are rarely involved in the analysis and accreditation of our work.

We invite students to investigate the implicit and explicit presence of Black people in visual art, media and music. Art a vehicle that shapes public perception, rending it an influential tool for change.
