Art

Children learn through the six areas of experience: Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Collage, Textiles and 3D work.

The pupils explore and learn to use a wide range of materials, tools and techniques. They gain understanding and knowledge of colour, shape, space, tone, form, texture and pattern and use these elements to represent and communicate what they see, feel and think.

Through learning about the work of a variety of artists from a range of cultures, the children develop enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts and a knowledge of artists, craftspeople and designers. They use this learning to inspire and enrich their own artwork. 

Children frequently have opportunities to participate in local art projects and competitions.
