The Art and Design Department at Methodist Ladies' College offers a wide choice of disciplines supported by a dynamic team of specialist teachers and support staff. The focus is on developing art and design works based around an understanding of visual literacy.


We encourage all students to experiment with the creative process, which enhances learning and increases confidence.
