The ARTS

The Arts

The pupils are taught a variety of skills at appropriate stage of development. They are provided with structured opportunities for using different media, e.g. paint, pastels, clay etc in order to build up their experience. Drawing, painting and craftwork gives pupils a lifelong appreciation of art throughout history and gives them the opportunity to understand its development. Throughout the Key Stages the pupils look at famous artists and their work enabling them to achieve a greater understanding of the environment and response to form, order, design and pattern.
