Art Statement of Intent
At Warren Hills Community Primary School, we know that Art enriches children’s learning, playing a vital role in developing pupil’s curiosity, communication, as well as freely and creatively expressing their thoughts and feelings. Due to the expressive nature of the Arts there is no correct way to create a piece of Artwork. Therefore, children can engage with Art knowing it is a safe environment with no judgements and no limits to what they can create. Children develop their self-confidence as budding artists, feeling a sense of achievement in their artwork. Our Art curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop their skills using a range of media and materials. Children learn the skills of drawing, painting, printing, collage, textiles and digital art and are given the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas. We inspire children to engage in critical thinking, analysing their own artwork, the artwork of their peers and of professional artists. Our curriculum allows children to aim high, creating art with a purpose and an audience as we proudly display work in our Warren Hills Gallery.
