Our art curriculum is based on the 'Access Art Curriculum.' This is a curriculum that enables children to develop their creative, critical thinking and making skills. Children are encouraged to take risks and experiment on their art journey where they will be taught a progression of knowledge and skills. Children will meet, learn about and be stimulated and inspired by a wide range of artists and designers.

The curriculum is organised into the following areas of study:

  • Drawing and sketch books
  • Surface and colour
  • Working in 3 dimensions
