Applied Arts are a hallmark of a Derby education, challenging students to think, create and innovate. Traditional skills such as sewing and shop are enhanced with new disciplines such as robotics, photoshop, coding and engineering design, creating an interdisciplinary approach that mirrors the real world.
Handcrafting meets Technologic know-how...aptitudes for a changing world!
The Applied Arts Program has always been a special and richly rewarding part of the Derby student experience. The applied arts courses give students in the Middle and Upper Schools opportunities to explore their talents and interests in new and different ways. They are often delighted to find that what they learn is applicable in many other subjects.
