Art and Design

Art and Design Leader – Mrs. Grace Porter

 

At St. Peter’s Catholic First School we are committed to the development of the whole child to reach their full potential. Our Art and Design curriculum allows children to explore their imagination and express themselves and their individuality through the exploration of a variety of mediums. We encourage children to develop as creative thinkers, exploring and celebrating their ideas, feelings, attitudes and values. We aim to foster originality and creativity using Art as a means of communication.

 

We provide opportunities to

  • develop in the children a love and appreciation of art forms and build their confidence in expressing themselves creatively
  • enable children of all abilities to enhance their self-esteem through success in using the new skills taught as well as enabling them to apply these skills in other areas of the curriculum
  • develop the children’s ability to observe, investigate, respond to and record through a variety of forms and media
  • deliver the National Curriculum and Early Years Framework in an interesting and imaginative way in order to provide a broad and balanced art curriculum throughout the year groups
  • use the work of children to provide a colourful and stimulating environment around the school.

We are delighted to announce that once again, St. Peter’s have participated in the ‘Young Voices New Visions Art Exhibition’ at Worcester Cathedral. This year the theme for the exhibition was ‘Gratitude’. The children all worked hard on their masterpieces, and we are extremely proud of them. Here are a few photographs from the exhibition.
