Children love art at Hillsborough! Our approach enthuses the children and leads to some really exciting art, craft and design opportunities. We have welcomed a range of different artists into school to demonstrate and then teach our children a range of new skills.
Art, craft and design provides a visual, tactile and sensory experience and a special way of understanding and responding to the world.
Our curriculum aims to:
- Instil a love of art and children’s belief in their own ability to discuss, plan and create a piece of work.
- Develop a curiosity for the subject, as well as understanding and acceptance for all types of art. Children can appreciate how art has a value in the community they belong to and around the world, to grow their cultural capital.
- Support children to become more confident in the different elements of art.
Our Curriculum Content Includes:
- Creating Ideas
- Textile and Collage
- Working with Colour
- Knowledge about Artists.
