During Art lessons, children explore and develop ideas which are stimulated through observing the art and artefacts from a variety of cultures and periods of time, by working from direct experience or from their imagination. Skills and techniques are developed using a wide variety of media.
Work includes drawing, painting, collage, print making, model making, fabric work and clay modelling. Children are encouraged to investigate, create, evaluate and modify where necessary in order to develop their understanding and enjoyment of art as fully as possible.
Children from Year 1 upwards are taught in our purpose-built Art Room where they are able to use a wide range of materials. There is also a kiln available to support work with ceramics.
Work is often linked to other curriculum areas.
