Our rich and varied curriculum offers endless opportunities for art work in all its creative forms.

Through stimulating topics, children are encouraged to explore themselves and the world around them with artistic eyes. Each child uses a personal sketch book to record thoughts, ideas, scribbles and marks that are meaningful to them and their creative pursuits. Carefully planned activities ensure children continue to develop a progression of artistic skills which give them the confidence to apply them in their own creative ways.

 

 

KS2 Personal Sketch Books.

 

Skills

Children are working on an on-going programme of skills-based activities which encourage them to explore different ways of communicating through line, texture, colour and tone.
