Wickham Market Primary School
Rationale for Art
At Wickham Market Primary School we believe that Art contributes to the holistic development of the child and forms part of the wider curriculum.
Art enables children to develop their imagination and creativity and provides opportunities to explore, understand and respond to the world around them through visual, tactile and sensory experiences. The different areas of experience; drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, 3D work and textiles allow children to develop a range of skills and techniques, knowledge and understanding. Pupils are encouraged to use a range of media, tools and materials and to learn about and observe the work of different artists, craftsmen and designers throughout history and across different cultures
