Art & Design

We aim to provide the children with a variety of opportunities to experiment with different media and techniques, in 2 and 3 dimensions, and to promote an awareness and enjoyment of art work from many cultures.

Children produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences. They develop skills in drawing, painting,sculpture as well as other art, craft and design techniques.

We are very lucky to work closely with a local artist, Ian Fennelly, who comes into school to work with our Year 2 children each year. In recent years the children have created some very detailed watercolour paintings as well as fantastic sculptures. Mr Fennelly teaches the children various techniques and skills to make sure that each piece of artwork is unique.

 

We also use the outdoor environment to provide a focus for our work.

In EYFS the children enjoy exploring colour mixing.

In Key Stage 1 the children have lots of opportunities to develop their skills using colour in interesting ways, such as pointillism and water colour gradients.
