The Art course has been designed to give pupils; through the use of music, written texts, the spoken word and a variety of visual stimuli, inspiring opportunities to develop their creativity and confidence to achieve their own works of art, craft and design.
The Curriculum Outline provides detailed information about the current programme of study.
We use a wide range of materials, different media and techniques to encourage pupils to experiment and develop their practical skills as they explore tasks. The needs of individual pupils are addressed and specialist equipment and materials are available for use eg. different scissors, drawing pens, modelling materials.
Opportunities are also available for individual help and advice at lunch times and at the Art Club held one evening per week. A number of artists are studied throughout all year groups and pupils learn to think critically and gain understanding of their work and the work of others.
We also aim to be enterprising and use the art created in school. Recent calendars have proved popular and our designs depicting ‘Pudsey Bear’ wearing various costumes and made into badges have raised nearly £400 for Children in Need.
