Art & Design
At St Patrick's, we aim to ensure that all children can learn and develop their key skills in drawing, painting and scuplting by teaching a broad range of skills taken from the National Curriculum.
Each child has their own sketch book for the purpose of developing their artistic skills and showcasing their learning, development and understanding.
Children learn subject specific vocabulary that enriches their understanding of key skills and concepts which they then apply to their own ideas. All children have the opportunity to learn about famous artists and their impact on culture and artistic movements.
We use a See, think, wonder approach - children look at artwork, study pieces carefully and generate their own ideas and responses to the art they have encountered.
Children also have the opportunity to apply to be in the school's Art Committee. Children in the Art Committee have access to specific sketchbook and skills based sessions in our own bespoke Art Studio on the school grounds.
