At Elworth CE Primary School, we value Art as an important part of the children’s broad and balanced curriculum. We actively develop a wide range of skills across the key stages to build on control of materials, tools and techniques to enable children to create their own works of art and design. We also give children the opportunities to experience the roles and purposes of Art in different times and cultures as well as develop their awareness of past and present artists, designers and architects. Our thematic approach to learning provides children with the opportunity to develop skills in key techniques including painting, collage, sclupture, drawing, print, textiles and digital media.
From Year Three onwards, every child has their own sketchbook to record their ideas and inspirations. We have an annual art exhibition for children to produce and showcase a range of art work. In addition, we provide opportunities throughout the year for the children to work with art and design specialists.
