Art is a very important part of a child’s education. Through art we aim to promote confidence and enjoyment in: communicating, developing the imagination, creativity, expression and observing and recording.

We aim to foster an appreciation of the work of famous artists and that of other children. Through our Art curriculum we teach specific skills in drawing, painting, print making, textiles and 3D work.

As a school we annually celebrate our work in art through holding an art exhibition or a special art day led by an artist in residence.
