At Frampton, all children are encouraged to develop their artistic creativity while learning new skills, often within the context of their topic work. They are given opportunities to experience different approaches to art and design; working individually, in groups and as a whole class. Although art and design is integrated across the curriculum, we believe that some skills need to be taught in isolation in order for children to simply practise working with a medium as an end to itself.
Throughout Key Stage 1 and 2, an awareness of colour, shape, texture, line and shade are developed alongside the use of various medium such as paint, pencil and materials. Within the foundation stage, every child has access to various arts and crafts materials in order to experiment with creative play from an early age. All children will be given the opportunity, at their own level, to evaluate their own work and see their art work on display in their classroom.
Children also have the opportunity to study famous artists and learn about their work.
