Within Art, pupils are given the opportunity to experience projects linked to drawing, painting, sculpture, textiles (decoration), printing and collage, as well as photography. We learn about current and past artists and architects who have created work in these areas.
Activities are may be skills based to support pupil’s development of a certain skill or creative and messy to allow pupils to explore the medium, and we emphasis key vocabulary to support learning, and relevant cross curricular links to other subjects. Many of our topics are adapted from the fantastic art resource website AccessArt, of which we are a member.
Where possible we work with artists in the local community. We recently ran an after-school club through Baltic Art Gallery’s Baltic Stars programme and had our work displayed at the Gallery!
