In Flanderwell we pride ourselves in upholding the culture and appreciation of art. We encourage the children to look at other artist’s work and gather their own ideas from different sources. From this they develop their individuality and technique whereby all children can achieve their full artistic potential.

From EYFS to Y6 children are offered a wide variety of stimuli and choice of media to inspire them to design, create and evaluate their art work.

Over each key stage our children are provided with the experience of an extensive range of creative opportunities. Our key skills also ensure that there is clear progression through the year groups and children build year on year their artistic skill in techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, clay, 3D, textiles and printing.

Much of our artwork is cross curricular, giving the children a real purpose for their work and a wider audience: Eg through our exhibits in Picture This exhibition. Our high expectations and the value we place on our children’s achievements are evident in the stunning displays of work throughout school too.
