Art

Our aim is to promote children’s enjoyment and appreciation of art.  We believe that the highest quality art work comes from motivated children in a well-organised environment.

Children gain direct experience of a wide range of art activities including drawing, painting, print making, textiles and collage and other two and three dimensional forms.  These skills are developed alongside the parameters of art: line, colour, pattern, shape and texture and through the study and appreciation of the work of artists.  Children have valued the opportunity to work with visiting professional artists.   Annual visits are made to the National Gallery, London, by Year Two.
