All children are given the chance to experience and create Art in a stimulating, enjoyable, practical and sensory way that is completely tailored to their own needs. We recognise that Art stimulates creativity and imagination, enables children of all abilities to have new experiences, and to express themselves in a way that might not be otherwise available to them.
Art teaching will be fun, meaningful and linked to the children’s everyday life to provide context. Art provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. It enables children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes
Through our bespoke curriculum we aim to inspire a love of Art, promote enjoyment, and progressively develop knowledge and skills through practical and engaging activities. We will also encourage the children to explore ideas and meanings by studying a range of artists – both contemporary and classical.
Art is celebrated through class and school displays.
Where appropriate we follow a tailored progression of skills across key stages 1 and 2 of the national Curriculum which covers the mediums of
Drawing/Painting /3D Work /Collage /Printing/ Photography /Textiles.
