“Art and design is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise: with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality." Quentin Blake, Illustrator and Children's Laureate.
At Thythorn Field we view the Arts as opportunities for pupils to be creative and imaginative. This is through drama, dance, music and visual art. Through the arts, we give children a range of experiences to captivate and motivate them, allowing them to creatively explore new ideas. Children with a range of abilities and needs have the opportunity to creatively express their ideas and emotions, and in turn progress both personally and academically.
We aim to give children a wide variety of high quality art experiences, using a variety of media for drawing, painting, printing, collage and sculpture that engage and challenge our pupils. Our scheme of work, developed from the national curriculum, includes aspects of appreciation, art history and experimentation. Artists and styles and cultures from around the world are studied. Our art lessons are incorporated across the curriculum, making learning fun and accessible for all pupils.
