The Art and Design Coordinator is Miss Preston.
At Redscope Primary School we are very passionate about the arts and they live at the core of everything we do. We believe that the arts provide our children with opportunities to express themselves in a constructive and safe way that will positively impact on all areas of their development.
Art and Design plays an important part in the whole curriculum. These taught skills are developed and applied across the whole Primary Curriculum. It is an invaluable way to develop a child’s self-esteem, self-confidence, self-discipline, collaboration skills and their individual potential.
We are committed to providing quality lessons and learning experiences for the children. Often, the artwork the children complete is linked to our topics. Children are given the opportunity to explore artists, develop skills and complete detailed pieces to be proud of. Knowledge, skills and understanding in art are developed over the years and the children take part in a clear progression.
We have recently begun working towards our ArtsMark award. This shows our commitment to the arts and cultural education and ensuring it is accessible for all learners.
In our art lessons, we focus on four main areas.
- Drawing, including a variety of media
- 3D Sculpture
- Exploring Mediums, including textiles, computer design and printing.
