Art and Design Lead:
Pupils develop their creativity and imagination by exploring the visual, tactile and sensory qualities of materials and processes.
They learn about the role of art, craft and design in their environment and begin to understand colour, shape and space, pattern and texture and use them to represent their ideas and feelings. They increase their critical awareness of the roles and purposes of art, craft and design in different times and cultures.
Throughout school we give children the opportunity to create using a range of media; clay, paint, pastels, water colours etc. Some examples of the art and design we have been doing in different year groups are pictured below.
In April we celebrated Art and Modern Artists by inviting a local artist in to do workshops with each year group. We all chose an artist to focus on and spent 2 days learning about that artist and creating art work in the same style. It was a great opportunity to celebrate art and culture. A special thanks to Michelle Wall, artist, who worked with each year group to create art work on a large scale!
