At Wethersfield School art is taught through a topic based approach, as well as teaching skills separately, before they are used in topic work to ensure progression within the art curriculum. We encourage children to find enjoyment in creative art and to see themselves as artists.
All children are given an opportunity to acquire skills in six major areas, drawing, painting, printing, textiles, modelling, construction and visual appreciation and are then encouraged to communicate their ideas through the use of colour, shape, texture, form, pattern and materials. The study of a wide range of artists, craftspeople and designers complements this work.
