Art Curriculum

At St Elizabeth’s, Art is taught within a creative curriculum to engage, inspire and challenge pupils. Children are given the knowledge, skills and confidence to experiment and create their own works of art by using a range of tools and materials in increasingly challenging ways.  

Children can communicate their ideas through the varied use of colour, texture, form, pattern and materials.  As pupils progress, they develop their creativity and critical awareness through constructive evaluation of their own and other artists’ works.  

Our school is well-situated to take advantage of the specialist facilities provided by the many art galleries and museums close by.  This further extends children’s understanding of artists, craft makers and designers and the historical and cultural development of their art forms.  In addition regular opportunities within school to meet and work with practising artists inspire children to understand the work of the artist and their role within society.  The school holds an annual Arts Week when children work with local artists and visit galleries.
