Art Curriculum Statement
We aim to engage, inspire and challenge children to experiment and create their own works of art, craft and design. The children will think critically know how art reflects and shapes our history. They will produce creative work and become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques. They will evaluate and analyse creative works using appropriate language and will learn about artists and designers.

Year One – Trip to Walker Art Gallery
We went to the Walker Art Gallery and explored the art work. In the gallery, we sketched an abstract piece – Broken Bride by John Hoyland. We saw lots of sculptures in the sculpture gallery and sculpted a small piece of art based on an animal. We had a fantastic time learning about art.
