Art

Art provides children with opportunities to develop a range of ways in which they can share and express their individual creativity, whilst learning about and making links with a wide spectrum of different types of art, artists, craft makers, designers and architects throughout history and across a diverse range of cultures, race and gender.

Art

At Grazeley Primary School we believe that art is a vital and integral part of each child’s education. It contributes to children’s personal development in creativity, independence and self-reflection.  It provides them with opportunities to develop a range of ways in which they can share and express their individual creativity, whilst learning about and making links with a wide spectrum of different types of art, artists, craft makers, designers and architects throughout history and across a diverse range of cultures, race and gender.

At Grazeley, we believe every child should feel that they can succeed at art, by enabling them to work individually or collaboratively, on different scales and through different media and by understanding of the visual elements of art and design (line, tone, texture, colour, pattern, shape, space, 3D form).

We teach a skills-based art curriculum, which allows children to express their creative imagination as well as providing them with opportunities to practise and develop mastery in the key processes of art: drawing, painting, printing, textiles, collage, sculpture and digital media.
