Art enables children to explore and understand the world around them. Children’s love for art, from the past and other cultures, is fostered through visits to galleries and museums.
We consider drawing to be a key skill that needs to be taught. All units of work start by drawing from first-hand experience, this develops observational and perceptual skills. Through these experiences children develop an understanding of the elements of art and develop an art vocabulary to review and evaluate their work. As part of our art work we also study artists and the work of artists from different periods.
Stimulating displays around the school put up by our staff, share and celebrate the children’s visual learning.
