Our Vision and Principles for Art

At St. Peter’s we strongly believe that Art and Design plays a truly vital role in children’s education. Through high quality, well-sequenced learning opportunities, that build on prior knowledge, and effective teaching we want our pupils to learn how to successfully control a wide range of 2D and 3D media and study a diverse range of artists. Children will learn the skills of drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, textiles, sculpture and digital art. Children will work expressively and imaginatively and will be encouraged to record from observation, to have the confidence to explore and take risks and develop a sense of wonder about the world around them. The children will develop their knowledge of different artistic styles, and traditions, and will be equipped with the vocabulary to evaluate their own and others’ work. The school’s unique locality is utilised with planned opportunities for creating art work outside of the classroom.
Through our Art curriculum we intend that all our pupils will have many opportunities to flourish!
