Art is a useful means of expression, and is linked with other areas of the curriculum. All children have experience in using a variety of media including paint, pastel, clay, fabrics and sewing. They produce both 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional work.
During art lessons, children are encouraged to talk about their observations, so developing their use of language. They study work by famous artists and imitate those styles in their own work. We also encourage the children to identify art in the local environment, and value each other's work.
We believe strongly in children working from first hand experience, so make use of many artefacts, visits and natural objects.
