All children will be taught the skills and knowledge of art as outlined in the programmes of study in the National Curriculum for Art.
Our main aim is to promote enjoyment of art and the children will be involved in observational drawing, painting, pastel-work, printing and textiles. The children will also be given opportunities to develop their knowledge of art forms and artists from different periods and cultures.
The art projects upon which they embark will be linked to the topic they are learning, to provide access to all learning styles. It may be that one of the Imaginative Learning Projects, previously mentioned, has an Art focus, or the art chosen simply enhances the understanding of the topic as a whole.
Visiting artists may also enhance the provision for the children, together with after school clubs.
