Inspire our children to be creative and express themselves
To provide opportunities to promote positive mental health and wellbeing
Enable our children to develop art skills
Allow our children time to experiment, enjoy and succeed in creative activities
To build children’s confidence and allow them opportunities to be individual artists
Inspire our children to understand how the creative arts are incorporated into society and how the creative industries can be a valued career.
Enable our children to explore diverse and contemporary artists, with a particular focus on Bristol artists.
Provide a varied art curriculum which is both experimental and project based
Cover the core disciplines of drawing, painting with colour theory, sculpture particularly through using clay and learning from diverse contextual sources
Pupils will also have opportunities to further develop their creativity and through Collage, Printing, Textiles, Sustainable Art and World Crafts, and their self-expression skills.
Enrichment opportunities include taking part in the local Arts Trail, whole-school Art and Clay Days, off-site exhibitions, getting involved in Community Art events, and visits from Bristol artists.
This approach offers the children a broad, aspirational range of creative experiences, enabling them to find their own artistic interests and strengths.
