Art and Design
At Green Lea First School, it is our intent to promote and encourage a love of art. Through a variety of art opportunities, we aim to engage, inspire and challenge our children equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art, craft and design. The overall concepts of line, tone, colour, shape, pattern, texture and form are taught alongside the art skills of drawing, painting, sculpture, collage and printing. Our high-quality knowledge rich art provision enables our children to gain a firm understanding of what art is. They will be educated in the genres of different artists and research and explore those artists so that they become aware of the differing styles of traditional, modern and contemporary. They will also critique other artists work so they become more aware of their own and others’ cultural heritage.
