Art Learning Pathway at St John's
At St John’s C of E Primary School, we want our children to grow into confident artists, who are able to explore, experiment and create pieces in which they can express their feelings and personal identity.
We aim to engage and inspire by examining a wide variety artists and cultures, emphasising the importance of art as a form of personal self-expression, rather than the recreation or imitation of another artist’s work. Consequently, we aim to enrich our children’s learning with a range of skills and design ideas based on the key concepts of colour, pattern, texture, line shape, form and space which develop from Year R to Year 6.
At St John’s we value the artistic journey rather than the end product. We aim to enable children to have positive creative experiences and facilitate a growth in confidence which is strongly rooted in skill development.
