Visual Arts

​St Peter Claver College has a Claver Creative Visual Arts Block. It consists of three Art studios as well as speci​​alist, storage and outdoor areas. The new facility has long windows on one external wall revealing an exciting gallery where student work is exhibited. Visual Art is a dynamic component of Claver Creative where links are made across the curriculum but particularly across the Arts. sculptures.jfifVisual Art Image.jfif
