Art and Design

Art and Design is an important part of children’s education and it is our aim at Sarisbury Junior School to stimulate creativity and imaginations and to provide children with the opportunities to develop a wide range of skills and an enjoyment in the subject. The Art and Design curriculum includes painting, collage, print making, sculpture (clay and paper & paste), textiles and drawing. We introduce children to the work of artists, crafts persons and designers in order to develop their appreciation of a diverse cultural heritage. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to sample first hand experiences wherever possible and provide visits to the local Art Gallery to enrich children’s learning. Visiting artists are also encouraged to work with the children to develop their skills.
