Throughout the school art is developed through discrete and topic related lessons.
Pupils experience working from a range of starting points and explore the use of various media as they move through school. In Foundation stage, they explore the use of paints, pencils, chalks, pastels, clay and collage materials.
Within Key Stage one and two, children develop their ideas through focussed lessons and by exploring art linked to other areas of the curriculum. Children work in 2D and 3D and have opportunities to work on individual and group activities.
Within the art curriculum, children think about pattern, colour, texture, shape and form using various media. They learn to evaluate their work and consider how they might change their work in future. Children also learn about artists as they move through school and this year a number are working with a world renowned artist originally born in Ossett.
