Art and Design
We believe that Art and Design are integral to a balanced curriculum. We aim to provide children with a rich curriculum that encourages exploration, experimentation, and discovery. Art is taught discretely and within in other subjects. We try, wherever possible, to make links with other subjects. That might be preparing props or set pieces for a school performance, making close and careful observational drawings in science or making a Misericord!
Children will have the opportunity to experiment with mixed media, clay, felt making, print making and sewing but this list is limitless. We are keen to engage with children’s interests and find artistic ways to express those interests.
We want children to believe they are artists and not be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes can often produce the most interesting effects!
