Art provides children with the opportunity to express themselves imaginatively and creatively, in a way that is unique to us all. Our Art Curriculum engages, inspires and challenges pupils giving them the skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art and design.
At St Martin’s C of E Primary & Nursery School, children learn to become visual thinkers through drawing, painting, sculpture and other art techniques. Art supports the development of fine motor skills as well as language through discussion. Art enables children to learn the part that art plays in the lives of others, in History, in different cultures and how it contributes to the creativity of the world.
Children have the opportunity to discuss and express their opinions on works by a variety of artists. They can make something to be proud of and display. Art can also inspire children to use their imagination throughout all other areas of the curriculum.
Our gallery is changed regularly to reflect the work of the term from across the school.
