Through art we are able to give pupils the opportunity to express their ideas and creativity using a range of media, both 2D and 3D.
We start by introducing a topic, artist or art movement and show the children examples and ideas to spark their imaginative journey.
We encourage a growth mindset and provide opportunities for pupils to acquire the ability to make informed, critical responses to their own work. They can then further their ideas.
We start each academic year, as a whole school, with our ‘Take One Picture’ topic with provides pupils and staff with the opportunity to explore cross curriculum learning based on one famous picture.
