The school believes that art is a vital part of the education of all children and ensures that art has a high profile. By the time pupils leave the school, they will know about great artists, architects and designers, will have become proficient in several techniques, and will be able to use sketch books to review and revisit ideas. Our pupils’ accomplishments are proudly displayed around the school.
How Do We Teach Art?
Art is taught as a subject in its own right by our specialist art teacher, who is a professional artist. Pupils are taught how to produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. They learn to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques and they learn to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design. In lessons, they will also learn to know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and to understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
