Capturing Creativity

In Art we are creative with different mediums

The creativity of the arts is seen in its rawest from in the EYFS where children spontaneously engage in creativity. We intend to foster this artistic creativity throughout the school through our weekly discrete art lessons. Our art curriculum is split into six units of work, each looking at a different artist. Through these artists, each year children will complete a unit of work in sketching, painting, textiles, sculpture, 3D and print. We believe that the emphasis of art should be placed on the process of creating the art and the knowledge, skills and understanding that has been learnt, rather than the end product. Through each unit we provide children with the opportunities to research, to experiment, to design, to make and to evaluate.
