Art is a vital and integral and valuable part of children’s education; providing them with opportunities to develop a range of ways in which they can express their creativity whilst learning about and making links with different types of art in our society.
At Lanesfield we aim to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art to enable children to reach their full potential. Pupils are encouraged to develop their critical thinking and to establish a more thorough understanding of art and design through an immersive curriculum centred around the great artists. Children will be introduced to a range of works and develop knowledge of the styles and vocabulary used by famous artists. We believe art provides children with the opportunities to extend their skills through a variety of media and materials and we encourage pupils to be reflective and evaluate their work to make changes and improvements.
