05 Jul Our Art Curriculum
At SJSJ Primary School we believe that art inspires creativity, imagination and inventiveness. We believe that art gives our pupils the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to engage and express responses to ideas and experiences. It fires their imagination and is a fundamental means of personal expression.
We teach art lessons in a block of lessons across a week, four times a year. Each block focuses on a particular art skill and each class has a focus artist to research and be inspired by.
Sketchbooks, for children to record and experiment in, are used through the school. They are also used to track progression and skills development. Pupils learn to appreciate works of art and use artistic language to describe paintings, sculptures and other art forms.
