Art Curriculum

At St Peter and St Paul CE VA Primary School we value art as a way of enriching and extending our curriculum. 

Art skills and knowledge are built on year-on-year with an emphasis on sketching and shading, colour theory and art techniques.  Each year all year groups study at least one famous artist such as Steven Wilshire, Rousseau, Lichtenstein and Escher.

At the end of each year, we hold a school 'Celebration Week' where art in its widest form is the focus for all children.  The work produced during this time is stunning and the skills and enthusiasm of the children are highly evident (as are those of the teachers).  The work is used to turn the school into a  giant, walk-through Art Gallery.

For the last seven years, we have employed the services of a professional artist, who provides lessons and clubs for the children, as well as a Teacher's Club.  This allows all to have the opportunity to grow their skills and talents.  He provides termly awards for outstanding art achievement.

Our cross curricular approach and strong promotion of art has led to the school achieving a 'gold' Artsmark.
