Autumn at Doon brings a feast of Art and Drama to the lives of the boys and wider school community. Visitors to The Doon School always comment upon the breadth of Art, Drama and Music in the curriculum. There are two well known plays being performed this term and one of them will be known to you as a famous film. Musically we are in for a varied programme and some first class musicians will be performing at a selection of concerts taking place throughout the term. There is much for boys to enjoy, learn and be inspired by and for adults to relish.

The viscosity of the paint may be modified by the addition of a solvent such as turpentine or white spirit, and varnish may be added to increase the glossiness of the dried oil paint film. Oil paints have been used in Europe since the 12th century for simple decoration, but were not widely adopted as an artistic medium until the early 15th century. The technical history of the introduction and development of oil paint, and the date of introduction of various additives (driers, thinners) is still-despite intense research since the mid 18th century-not well understood.
