At Sholing Junior School art forms an important part of the curriculum. We believe art education stimulates creativity and imagination and is a vital part to create a broad and balanced curriculum. We aim to develop high-quality art that children can relate to; which inspires and challenges them. We equip them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and have the opportunity to practise and produce their own individual piece of art/craft. Children are encouraged to critically evaluate their own work and that of others in order to learn from their experiences. Throughout the Key Stage, they will get an insight into how art both reflects and shaped our history, and contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. In Art, children will have opportunities to draw, paint, print, make collages, use fabrics and threads and use clay/wire/willow sculpture.
