The children are encouraged to be develop their creativity using a variety of mediums and techniques in art. Children investigate and explore colour, shape, balance, focus and proportion, as well as different ways to convey ideas and feelings. The study of a wide range of artists and designers complements this work.
Children begin their art journey in EYFS in our specialist group room, which is filled with a variety of interesting resources. This provides children with the opportunity to explore art and to express themselves creatively.
Children continue their artist journey in Year 1 and continue to develop their creative and artistic skills throughout their school career. At Amesbury Primary School, we are lucky to have a specialist art studio, providing children with a vibrant space to be creative. The art studio is well equipped, providing the children with a wide range of exciting resources and opportunities. A qualified artist teaches PPA art sessions, which provides children with even greater opportunities for learning and development.
Generally, the teaching of art is alternated each term with design and technology, meaning children will carry out three exciting art topics over the year.
Each year, Amesbury Primary School takes part in the Amesbury Carnival. This year, we will be having an Art Whole School Pause Day, which will be focused on the Carnival. This will allow staff and children time to prepare costumes, floats and props for their carnival process.
Walking around Amesbury Primary School is a wonderful experience, as we have many vibrant, exciting displays showing the amazing art work of our children. It lovely to see the range of opportunities being provided and the pride the children take in their artwork.
