As part of our curriculum, all pupils will have the chance to develop their knowledge and skills as young artists. They are provided with opportunities to produce artwork across the curriculum and build upon their skills as they move through the school. We believe that Art is more then just producing a drawing, so we also help children to develop their ability to discuss Art and its context; express their thoughts and feeling about different pieces and develop and explore their own ideas.
Each Summer, Years 1-6 take part in a project which allows them to showcase the skills they have worked on, culminating in an Art and Sculpture exhibition for the school community. Our Art curriculum will focus on four key areas:
- Artistic skills (including line and tone, colour, texture, pattern and form)
- Art through technology
- Developing and exploring ideas
- Artist studies
