Our Art Curriculum

Art has a very important place in our curriculum.

We see art as a vehicle for creativity and individual expression and it provides opportunities for collaborative work. It is an important form of cultural expression and, therefore, has significance and meaning for all our children. Our teaching provides an understanding of all the diverse art forms so that the children experience drawing, painting, collage, textiles, 3D designs, printmaking and digital media.

We have Art Days with a whole school focus on one artist or painting and we include art in our themed weeks.

We are working hard to achieve our Artsmark. This involves taking part in lots of creative activities- this can be indoor or out! 

We develop our Cultural Capital by studying a range of artists and completing projects based on their famous artwork:

  • Annie Albers
  • MC Escher
  • Yayoi Kusama
  • Vincent Van Gogh
  • Wassily Kandinsky
  • Anthony Gormley
  • Andy Goldsworthy
  • Sol LeWitt

We follow the National Curriculum programme of study
