Why are we teaching Art ?

 

Art and Design is all around us. From the wallpaper on our walls, the furniture we sit on, to the films we watch. At Sandbrook , not only are we teaching the potential artists of the future, but we are helping all of our children to develop an appreciation of the visual world around them,  through a balance of skills based teaching, creative encouragement and experimentation.

 

 

As artists at Sandbrook,  we  would like our children to be able ; 

  •  To produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences 
  • To become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques 
  • To evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design 
  • To know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms

 

During their time at Sandbrook , children are given the opportunity to develop their skills in using a variety of 2D and 3D materials: papier mâché to clay; oil pastels to acrylic paints and printing to photography. Modern artists are appreciated alongside the more traditional who still influence our lives today. We teach our children to value art and be creative !
